2015/2016 Northern California Snow Trip. Stops at Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park, Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, and Mammoth Lakes. There was quite a bit of snow when we arrive in Sequoia/Kings Canyon, and Yosemite National Park. Lake Tahoe was amazing with many inches of snow. Luckily we were between storms. Then, we headed down 395 south to Mammoth Lakes. We arrived the night of one of the big snow storm. The night and morning hours were beautiful with snow falling. We drove out before being snowed in. Amazing snow trip as planned. :)
Beautiful fall trip with stops in Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Canyon De Chelly National Monument. We hit Grand Teton National Park in perfect fall mode. Wow, such amazing colors throughtout the park. We were able to catch some amazing sun rises and sunsets while in Grand Teton NP. We spotted some wolves, grizzly bears and their young while in Yellowstone NP. Visited Rocky Mountain National Park for the first time. Beautiful mountains, wildlife, and off roads up into the mountains. We need to go back for more. :)

San Diego to Alaska and back. Flew into Juneau, Alaska from San Diego. Ferried over to Haines. Drove from Haines to Haines Junction, Beaver Creek, Yukon, then onto Tok, Alaska. Then we
drove to Anchorage, and Homer Alaska.
From Homer, Alaska, we flew over to Kodiac Island. Took a 4 seater charter flight to Katmai National Park to see the Brown bears. The amazing plane trip took us over beautiful mountains, and a large inlet. While looking down we spotted the bears and landed the float plane very close to them. We proceeded to walk with our guide to a safe loacation where we could set up our cameras. As the bears were grazing, mating, and playing, they got withen 30 feet of us. We simply sat there and enjoyed watching them for hours. The experience was so touching, we did the same trip again the following day with the same plane and guide.
San Diego to Alaska and back. Flew from San Diego into Juneau, Alaska. We visted Glacier Bay National Park from Gustavus. Due to bad timing we missed the planned trip by ferry over to
Haines and had to take a small plane there. Drove from Haines thru Haines Juntion, Tok, Fairbanks, Denaili National Park, via train to Telkeetna and back, Anchorage, and down to Seward.
Then we drove back to Juneau, Alaska. Flew home from there.
Driving thru Yukon, Canada and Alaska is Amazing. A must drive.
At the airport in Juneau, we were attempting to find the next flight to Haines when a young pilot offered to fly us to Haines on his way home. He was a great pilot and a fun person; often flying down to show us interesting views. We passed our ferry on the way!
On our flight over to Haines, we saw a Glacier on the left. As I was pointing out the Glacier, the pilot asked, do you want to see it closer. Yes we said as we flew toward the glacier. What an amazing person we ran into and a great error turned into one of the best parts of our trip.
Great things happen when you least expect it.
