Travel Adventures - Anchorage, AK

Last August my extended family (parents, sisters and their families) took a cruise together through Alaska to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. With most of us scattered around the globe, such family trips happen maybe every other year. The last time we were all together was in 2016. As my children are officially adults, I know these family vacations will wane with each passing year, so each opportunity is to be cherished.

As the un-official (yet default) photographer / memory keeper of the family, I am tasked with curating the content and creating the Family Reunion Photo book. Fortunately, advances in technology, the prevalence of cell phone cameras and the ability to share photos easily means I am no longer the sole chronicler of trip and I love seeing the various perspectives from family members.

I am however, still responsible for assembling the photo book.

I am happy to report that I completed the Chang Family Reunion Alaskan Cruise Photo book last weekend. Whew, I am glad that is done.

And as a result, I have fresh blog material to share!

First up - photos from Anchorage, Alaska - Along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail

The LeMays and Burrows arrived the week before the cruise in order to travel north to Denali. Flying to Anchorage takes a full day and we arrived late Monday evening. I woke up early the next morning and wandered to the breakfast area that hadn't opened so settled for a coffee. I ran into my sister Teresa who was preparing to go out for a run! We drove out to Margaret Eagan Sullivan Park to access the Tony Knowles coastal trail as the sun was starting to rise. We rounded the Westchester lagoon and under the rail before reaching the official trail. My sister ran while I took photos. I passed the Fish Creek Estuary where most of these photos were taken.

Why should the pretty pink flowers get all the attention?

When visiting Anchorage, this coastal trail is a great way to get away from the city and into nature. The coast trail covers 11 miles with beautiful views.
