These pictures are from a trip to Alaska we took this Summer (early August) - it was our first visit to Alaska, and we were simply blown away by its sheer scale and beauty. Our itinerary took us from Anchorage to Seward to Denali to Kennicott and back to Anchorage over a period of two weeks. I enjoy reading the TRs in this forum, so thought it would be fun to contribute! To begin, the obligatory points & miles references: we flew CO from SEA-ANC and back and the ride in F was very comfortable - it was my first time flying domestic F in CO, and I was pleased with the experience. Since it was a late night, we only had snacks (deli meat) but the seat and IFE were just great. We redeemed points to stay at the Sheraton in Anchorage and had a good experience overall. With rates north of $250 for much of the summer, the hotel presents a good deal for redemption (7K Starpoints/night) Due to our itinerary (that took us through Anchorage multiple times), we ended up staying thrice at the Sheraton and were assigned the same room type each time (room XX15, a junior suite). The club lounge had some snacks in the evening (no alcohol), but breakfast offerings were quite poor. We mainly used it to stock up on bottled water. We had breakfast at the restaurant once and the food was just about average (if that). Now that that's done, on to the rest of the trip. Enjoy! We began our trip in Vancouver (stayed there for a week), a city we really enjoy. Didnt take too many pictures of Vancouver this time - but it was as beautiful as ever.
