We made it to Alaska. Finally. We left the house this morning at about 6:00 AM — Eric was kind enough to take us to the airport — and arrived here in Sitka at about 6:45 PM. Remember, Alaska time is four hours behind Maryland time. We flew from Washington’s Reagan National Airport to California’s LAX. We switched planes there and flew to Seattle. We switched planes again and flew to Sitka with a brief stop in Ketchikan.
We didn’t have time for a real meal all day long. So as soon as we checked in to the hotel, we maintained a vacation tradition of ours and found a Mexican restaurant so Mike could try the fajitas. They were yummy.
Anyway… I am pooped. The next post will be more exciting. To see the pictures, click on the image below. NOTE: All of the aerial shots are from the window of an airplane, so they are not great photos, but they will give you an idea of what it looks like here.
