    My Honeymoon: Alaskan Cruise PICTURE HEAVY!

    Earlier this month, my wife and I went on our long awaited honeymoon: An Alaskan Cruise. We married in October of 2011, but because the Alaskan Cruising season ends in September, we had to wait an entire year for it start again.

    We visited the Tracy Arm Fjord, Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan. Here are some of the pictures from our trip. Many of them include cigars


    This was taken as we were just entering the Tracy Arm Fjord. It was fall weather, high 50s. Perfectly comfortable in jeans and a hoodie.




    Here is the land as we entered the Fjord. The entire waterway we sailed on was carved by a glacier over thousands of years.




    This is the glacier that carved out the Fjord. Yes...it really is that blue.

    I have to give a shout-out to what is now my favorite live band of all time: The Hi-Lux band!

    There was a cigar lounge aboard the ship with live music every night. The band consisted of four members from the Philippines. They rocked the doors off that place every single night. I recorded them playing Bohemian Rhapsody here if you'd like to see/hear: Hi-Lux Band: Bohemian Rhapsody - YouTube

    Viaje & Scotch for the first night:

    In Skagway we went dog "sledding." We had to ride in an old military vehicle called a Uni-MOG to climb up the mountain to get to the dog camp. Once we got there, the dogs went absolutely insane. They knew it was time to pull. The dogs live to pull...



    The sled actually was more of an eight-person golf cart. They created these for training purposes because there is no snow in summer. Each sled is intentionally built to weigh 800lbs...BEFORE passengers. The power of the dogs is amazing.

    I got to ride on the back...holding on for dear life!




    Once we got back to camp, we got to meet a dog that ran in the Iditarod three times. He is retired now and just greets everyone at the camp. All the dogs, even the ones pulling us, were extremely friendly.



    He didn't like it when I stopped petting him...



    Here we are after one of the pulls:

    Hmmm..I can't edit my posts to add any more pictures. So here I am again.

    After the dog "sledding" we got to meet the puppies:





    And of course, the entire reason I went to Alaska. So I could get my picture taken with Sarah Palin:
