Family Trip to Alaska/Denali, 2023
Our First Trip to Alaska
Sam wanted to go on some big trip in 2023, and he decided that he wanted to visit Denali, particularly to see it by air.
I was a bit apprehensive about the trip, as the weather forecast fortold rain most of the time we were there, so I expected the trip to be cold, wet, and miserable. In reality, however, while we didn't have perfect weather for the whole trip, we had much better weather than I had expected. In the end, it ended being a much better trip than I feared.
On our way back, we visited my brother John, who lives near Seattle. This was both a good excuse to visit him, but also a means to break up the long east-bound flight.
