    Sweet Smelling Toilets in Denali National Park

    Denali National Park guides seem particularly proud of the park’s SST’s (Sweet Smelling Toilets) which employ some of the latest and greatest toilet technology on earth to maintain a virtually odor free restroom experience. Naturally, since I was walking around with a video camera, I had to get some footage of this modern marvel in the Alaskan wilderness.

  • The Liberace Museum

    The Liberace Museum

    Heading out of Las Vegas early on a Sunday morning we accidentally drove up on a piece of Americana, the Liberace Museum. Another serendipitous MidLife Moment. We were early, but it didn’t matter because we knew we  would be first in line to see all the glitz, glamor and opulence that was Liberace! Sadly, this was the very last day it would be open. Due to the economic downturn and decline in visitors the Liberace […]

    Alaska ~ Mount McKinley

    Shortly after we settled into the Denali Princess Lodge, we took a short ride to the airfield where  we met our escorts from Princess Cruises and hopped on a 1966 Beaver Plane and headed towards the summit!

  • Alaska ~ Denali by Rail

    Alaska ~ Denali by Rail

    Our day began on rail with a train ride from Fairbanks to Denali. After a wonderful breakfast (Reindeer sausage and salmon burrito) aboard the train, we went upstairs to the glass covered rail car where we took in the breathtaking scenery. Our tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable of Alaskan history and geography. They always seemed to know exactly where we were as they give us notice of various photo opportunities in advance. We saw a HUGE […]

    We began our two week extraordinary Princess Cruise adventure by flying to Fairbanks, where we stayed the night a the The Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge.

Along the way we saw an Athabascan fish camp and a kennel that trains future Iditarod champions that […]
