Alaska Day 1

Left Boston on 8/9/11 at 82 degrees, pass thru Denver at 96 degrees and arrived into Anchorage, Alaska where it is only 56 degrees.  I saw my first Bear!  Ok, it was stuffed in a display case at the Anchorage airport.  Tomorrow we board the Alaska "Coastal Classic South" rail from Anchorage to Seward and will experience their GoldStar Service.
