Alaska and the Yukon Tour, July 2010

Our Holland America cruise/tour, Alaska and the Yukon, departing July 24, 2010 has a few spaces still open–contact me soon for information!

There will be a meeting of registered travelers on Sunday, March 21st at noon, at Portland First United Methodist Church, to explore the many optional land excursions available.

This tour presents such a unique opportunity to visit wilderness sites not often on an itinerary!

Alaska and the Yukon ahead!

Our adventure in Alaska and the Yukon is going to be the highlight of the summer, with departure on July 24th, 2010.  I’m so pleased to be doing this Holland America cruise/tour because it will be so unique–getting to see Glacier Bay and the calving glaciers, Denali, and Fairbanks, but also the wilderness in the Yukon.  I just learned that the Yukon river was the last major river on the continent to be explored–in the 1800s.  And how cool to be traveling on the McKinley Explorer Rail, the Yukon Queen River cruise, the White Pass Railroad  AND Holland America’s ms Zuiderdam!

This trip is sponsored by First Church Travelers of Portland First United Methodist Church, and has some space still available until early March.
