North to Alaska

I wanted everyone to know that it will be a couple of months before I can get back to my miniatures and post pictures of my projects on this blog.  Hubby and I are moving to Alaska in three and a half weeks!!  It's actually going home for me as I was born there, but once we drive across the Canadian border, it will be the furthest north my husband has ever been and I'm looking forward to watching him experience the Great North for the first time.  We're moving up there to be closer to my family; my dad and my brother.  My step-mother is having some serious health issues and they really need our help.  And while leaving Colorado is sad in some respects, I am getting more and more excited about going home as the days go by...there's just no place like Alaska; it's hard to put into words. 

So, we'll be driving the historical Alcan Highway with four cats.  Yes...four.  Four very spoiled and pampered indoor-only cats that have never been further away from home than the vet clinic five minutes up the street.  Eight days driving, seven nights of trying to settle them down in hotel rooms.  Should be interesting, to say the least.

I look forward to being able to share my new Alaska adventures with any of you who are interested in reading about them, so be looking for regular postings here in the near future.  Until then, I have found some glorious Alaska photos online that I really wanted to share here:

Have a good trip....that will be fun with the cats :-)

I am looking forward to seeing pictures.

I've spent a lot of time in Canada but North BC is the closest I've got to Alaska.

Thanks everyone! I'm getting so excited. I haven't been home in 12 years and I can hardly wait to see how much things have changed.

good luck Marie....both for the travel & with your 4 furry babies.
My little guy only goes in the car for trips to & from the vet...thankfully we only live 10 min away because I wouldn't want to put up with the noise on a longer drive. LOL
hugs Karin

What fabulous photos, I hope you have a great trip and move, it will be so nice to be near family for you.
We would our cats were quieter when we have their cages facing each other in the cat, I guess they try to be braver than each other, lol. We have never been to Alaska but hope to take a cruise up there some day.
