This past week I got to enjoy the beautiful state of Alaska with my family. Aboard the Carnival Miracle we were able to visit Sitka, Juneau, and Ketchikan. There are no words to describe the beautiful land we were able to see and explore. The photos I took can only capture a fraction of the land’s beauty. The weather was not at all what I expected, it was nearly 65°-70° while we were in Juneau. A couple things were hard to get used to; the four-hour time difference from the east coast and also the sun rising at 5:30am and setting at 8:30-9:00pm. All in all, this was an amazing trip and I am so thankful that my parents planned this trip for my family in honor of my Grandpa.
