My Alaska Blog - Complete!!

OK, I finally got off my lazy ass and started the blog. I'll be updating it over the next few weeks. It was a 5 week trip, and I have around 900 pictures, so it will take awhile to get it all up. The pictures are small in the blog, but if you cursor over the picture and click on the link at the top of the box that pops up, it will give you a full screen shot. And if you click on THAT, you'll get the full size shot.
Right now, All I have up is day 1. I'll try to get a few more days up today. I'll update the title of this post to reflect what day I'm on.
Good reading

Edit-

OK, I've changed my plan. I'm going to do separate blogs for each day. Trying to get it all in one would be an editing nightmare for me. I'm going to rename this link, and then post links here for each day.

http://alaskatrip.wordpress.com/2008/09/21/alaska-trip/ Day 1 - edited. I totally forgot about the Tiger taking a nap..

http://alaskatrip.wordpress.com/2008...ka-trip-day-2/ Day 2 - edited. I added some thoughts at the end.

http://alaskatrip.wordpress.com/2008...p-day-3-and-4/ Day 3 and 4

Bear with me, I'm trying to get the story out there, but I keep remembering things. And I'm wanting to get to the good stuff as soon as possible, Canada and Alaska!!
