Alaska - the touristy stuff

Independence Mine - an old gold mine that was abandoned due to the WWII draft.


The Musk Ox farm - they produce a lovely wool-like fiber Quiviut that is spun by natives into expensive but lovely lace patterns.


And - of course - a glacier tour run by a family friend out of Whittier - which was indeed a secret military base at one point due to it's almost 100% cloud cover 365 days per year.

Turi, you are right, it's kind of like Iceland, just the big version of it. What a wonderful place your family comes from!!!! Seems like you guys had a lot of fun up there. Can't wait to see the rest of your photos.
