  1. Wowza! Makes me want to hurry and get to more things on my bucket list! Looks like some seriously gorgeous scenery and sounds like a trip of a lifetime. There are few words that seem to be able to describe so many photos. I’m going with stunning.

      Thanks, Debbie! It was wonderful to get away:)

  3. Your pictures are so beautiful, they look almost too good to be real. It’s like looking at the work of a very talented artist. Thanks for sharing, Lora.

      Thanks for your sweet compliment!

  4. WOW! Yes Alaska is on my list and I’m glad you had such a wonderful trip to celebrate your 30! CONGRATULATIONS! I agree you need to frame the photo you mentioned, but all of your photo’s where beautiful. God has given us such a wondrous land to explore! Please include all info on travel, cruise & wondering how much time should be set aside for such a beautiful state. With temperatures in the 90’s, nothing like an iceberg!

      It was actually quite warm when we were there; normally 50’s-70’s. We were on a Holland American cruise for a week, 5 ports. It was a great overview of Alaska, but only scratched the surface of the beauty there.

      Thanks, Debra!

  5. Hi Lora!
    Thank you for your stunning pictures! What a lovely anniversary trip you had! As we witness the devastating effects of climate change around the world, I was grateful to see that glaciers still exist in Alaska, however alarmed that you actually observed part of it crumbling away! I hope we never give up the fight to preserve the pristine beauty of our natural resources for future generations!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      We did get to learn a little more about the glaciers there. They’re constantly evaluating their size. It honestly didn’t break up too much, considering it’s immense size; it was sunny and warm that day which is unusual. Yes, the earth has gone through many changes.

    Hi Lora,
    An Alaskan cruise is already on my bucket list, so you just confirmed it. 😀 Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos and acknowledging our amazing Creator.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful! Glad you enjoyed it!

  7. It is beautiful there and you are so right a picture does not even come close to what it is in person. My father worked for Tinkerfield Airforce base in OKC. and they sent him to Alaska, my parents lived there for three yrs.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      How cool that they got to live there a few years!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you! I took so many; this is a small sample:)

  8. Lovely photos! So happy that you and your hubby went on such an amazing trip to celebrate your thirty year anniversary! Congratulations!
