Alaska Trip - Weeks 5 and 6

Before our trip to Alaska, we bought the " Alaska TourSaver " book. This $99 book includes hundreds of coupons, mostly "two-for-one" deals on tourist attractions. We used a few coupons at some gift shops while in Anchorage for free gifts. They were mostly 50 cent souvenir magnets. One of the coupons Connie wanted to use was for an Alaska train trip from Anchorage to Whittier. There was no special ...

Teslin Lake Campground, Yukon, Canada

Teslin Lake, Yukon Territory, Canada

I'm still learning how to best make these videos. This video was made using a GPS assisted "loiter" mode, which created much of the jitters. The Drone kept wanting to adjust itself to remain in the correct locat...
