Alaska 2002


In May, 2002, Judy and I flew to Seattle with Randy and Gaye for a few of days of sightseeing before flying on to Anchorage for a seven day cruise along the Alaska coastline back to Vancouver, Canada.

Gaye and Judy pause to admire the beautiful rhododendron while walking back to the hotel from Dave's Diner.  A cool misty rain made jackets feel good.

After returning to the hotel we decided to take a bus tour of Seattle.  This trolley car stopped at Pioneer Square.

Pioneer Square is the location of the Seattle memorial to fallen firefighters.

Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park is a small museum recalling the crazed days a century ago when rough-and-ready gold-seekers converged on Pioneer Square on their way to the Yukon.

The Space Needle was the centerpiece of the 1962 World's Fair and is the most recognized symbol of Seattle. The tower stands 605 feet tall and according to Seattle's tourist guide "boasts fabulous views of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier, the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges and, of course, the beautiful city of Seattle".  (When it's not rainy and cloudy of course)

Seattle is a thriving port.  In this picture,  stacks and stacks of shipping containers await cargo and destinations.
