Alaska - Excursions - 2022

We did excursions at the different ports. This included the whale watching and wildlife cruise in Juneau, which gave us great views of humpback whales, sea lions, and birds. In Skagway, we did the spectacular White Pass & Yukon train (although we didn’t get to go as far as normal; Canadian COVID restrictions wouldn’t allow the train to cross into Canada). The best excursion was the adventure karts in Ketchican, which we did right after a rain - we were totally muddy afterwards but it was exhilarating and so much fun. The gold panning excursion was kind of a dud. We all collected a few gold flakes but it wasn’t that interesting. I guess we didn’t catch gold fever! We also went to lots of tourist gift shops and got our t shirts, post cards, and magnets.
