The 5% Challenge heads to the Yukon!

Sunday, April 03, 2016

One of my favorite trips was our Alaskan cruise and land adventure. Since we are headed that way in the 5% Challenge this week I thought that I would share a few pictures so that everyone gets an opportunity to see what a beautiful place that part of the world is!

Keep your eyes open! There is beauty everywhere...



The further north you go the larger the vistas but the smaller the trees!





Our destination, Carcross, even has a desert! Who would have thought - a desert in the Yukon!



Here we are in Carcross!





We were there in the early fall so there was no snow to mush through but we did get to take a dog sled ride on a converted cart!



I took so many pictures and some are stunningly beautiful but no picture can do justice to the sheer magnitude of the Yukon!



I am ready to return!

    That's a place I've ALWAYS WANTED TO GO !! I easily can afford it, but many of the friends I'd want to come with me,,, can't afford it. SIGH !! GRRR and I am NOT going to pay for them. I have 3 BF's ,, one of them I see almost daily. She spends her $$$ before she's received her deposit ! GRRR she drives me INSANE !! I keep telling "(Ex's name) may NOT send all the $$ he owes this month." He likes to pay 1/3 of it at a time,, and at times,,, usually ,, sends it only ONCE ! GRRR !!! I REFUSE to pay for her for another vacation. I did so for 2 yrs and it's just to much,, as in how it makes me feel. The place we go can be a little bit of $$$, but nearly as bad as it could be,,, it's right on the ocean,, facing the ocean. Nice place !

    Still I WANT ANOTHER CRUISE !!! There's also the problem that I live in awful chronic pain. When I am not at home in my sleep number bed,,, other beds HURT LIKE HECK !!! Some of the places we go to,,, ahhhh the mattresses feel HEAVENLY Until I fall to sleep, than NOT 1

    TY SO MUCH I don't know him that well,, I'd be uncomfy.

    HOPE you DO get to go again 11 I can't remember right off where you life,, I am up north far enough that now and than we do see the northern lights,,,, neat since I m in the city,,, it has to be QUITE STRONG for me too, but we DO ! SO AWESOME !
