Ms. Muzica quotes from the Naturalist and Conservationist John Muir
To the lover of wilderness, Alaska is one of the most wonderful countries in the world.and adds:
My trip to Alaska was my life-long dream. I still don't believe that I made it.I've never made it to Alaska but one of my favorite all time television programs was Northern Exposure which was about a NYC Doctor paying off his loans by working in a small Alaskan town. Here's a scene from the first episode with Joel and Maurice.
We spent 10 days in the wilderness: rafting, kayaking, hiking, fishing, bear watching, etc. guided by my friend: Len Fromzel.
I knew it would be difficult to repeat this trip, so, my husband and I decided to spend one more week in Alaska together: We saw Fairbanks, Denali Park, Anchorage, Seward, Glacier View, Glennallen, Talkeetna, etc.
Denali mountain was covered by clouds the entire week, but on the last day of the trip, our flight was cancelled because of Hurricane Irene and we had a chance to take an airplane to the glacier. It was the most wonderful trip of my life. My husband climbed Denali 5 years ago, but never saw her so beautiful as this time. It was like seeing an old friend, as he said. We can't describe our feelings.
Alaska will remain in my heart forever.
