Randy and I have been talking about visiting Alaska for years. And it's something I've wanted to do since I lived there as a kid. When I was in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade my dad was stationed at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage. Even as a kid it seems like I understood a little bit of the awesomeness of Alaska, although I also remember just taking it in stride. Before we moved away, our parents took us to Denali National Park (then called Mt. McKinley National Park) and I remember seeing the mountains and animals. I feel like ever since then I've known I wanted to go back some day.
Here are a few photos from my days in Alaska. I only have a few; I think that was my first camera, probably a "Brownie" camera, or maybe an "Instamatic."
