We sang at a few churches where we met some neat people. It was kind of surprising how many of them weren’t originally from Alaska…we even met other Minnesotans who now live there!
We did a lot more sightseeing and such on this part of the trip.
One day we went down to Homer and also visited Whittier. The following pictures are of Homer…
On our way back to Anchorage we pulled off to view a chunk of glacier that was actually floating in the water. And, of course, how often do you get to take a family picture with a floating glacier…?Back in the Anchorage area some new friends invited us to come over and celebrate Mother’s Day. It was a special time!We also have a friend from Minnesota who now lives in Alaska so it was fun to get a chance to visit with her before we headed for home.
Our time in Alaska was full of making memories for a lifetime. We had such a good time together…and we had to get one more picture in Alaska before we crossed the border towards home!On our way home we sang at a church in the Yukon, where we were blessed by their hospitality. A few other things we did…make a sign to add to the signpost forest, visit a hot springs, and finish driving the Alaska Highway.
And, of course, once we reached this point we still had many, many miles ahead until home. Fast forward a number of days, and we were at last driving down our road in the middle of the night and a song came on the radio called “Almost Home.” Perfect timing! We are so thankful for the opportunity God gave us to drive the whole way to Alaska and back, and everything in between. And thank you to everyone who was an encouragement to us along the way. What great memories we came home with!
Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. Psalm 90:1-2 NKJV
