Alaska begins when you see it from above!
The culture in Alaska is that you start to experience Alaska when you leave the ground! I'm not sure about that because I felt Alaska when I saw a big rat crossing the road and a bald eagle spreading its seven foot wingspan on top of our car...wilderness.But there are so many planes around that are available for your renting pleasure -- and I do suggest you do go up the sky at least once! Like what we did - we chose the helicopter glacier tour....But the drama of the glaciers can truly be experienced from the sky - I cannot deny that. From the boat, it just looks like a big mountain, but from the sky, you do appreciate how it formed and how maginificent it is.If I muster the courage, I might consider landing on a lake next with a float plane!UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!I made a video of my trip to Alaska with my JumpingSis!Hope you like this:JUMPING NORMAN IN ALASKA WITH JUMPINGSISTER!
