For those that are interested I just recently completed our photo albums from our recent Alaskan vacation July (July 27 to Aug 15). My wife Jean, 6 year old daughter Alana and I flew from Toronto to Vancouver where we spent 3 nights. We then boarded the Carnival Spirit for a one weak cruise through the inside passage of Alaska on our way to Whittier near Anchorage. We then spent another week visiting relatives in Anchorage. We hiked up to a glacier, road the white pass train to the summit in northern British Columbia, saw 2 jumping humpback whales right from our balcony on the cruise ship, caught 2 salmon, landed on a glacier with a ski plane next to Mount McKinley, north America’s tallest mountain, saw wild grizzly bears, moose and other wildlife, and did some white water rafting. This trip wouldn’t have been possible without prednisone. I took more than 3300 photos on this trip. You can check out the best ones in our new photo albums at: http://www.laflammefamily.ca
