North to Alaska

Glacier, Inner Passage, Alaska, 2008


One of my goals is seeing all 50 states and all the Canadian Provinces. There's so much to see on this continent and I've had a fabulous time sightseeing closer to home. Every year I try to visit a state and/or province I haven't been to before.

Last year was a bonanza. In May I was able to visit Arkansas and got to live out my dream of seeing the Peabody Hotel ducks in Little Rock. In August I took one of the best vacations ever and went to Vancouver and Alaska. For spectacular scenery there isn't much that rivals Alaska.
I'm not sure how many provinces I have left to visit, but I know I have ten states left. Raise your hand if you live in either Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma or South Dakota. Those are the states still on my list and meeting a blog friend would be a fun reason to put a state high on the list. With just the least bit of encouragement you might find Buttercup at your front door!
