Thanks very much for your in depth comments about your Anniversary trip in Alaska! It's been a few months but many Congrats on three years of marriage!! Very happy you were able to celebrate with a terrific experience in Talkeetna and dog mushing at the kennel And, how perfect, you had a "private tour", albeit unintended. Yes, John is an amazing tour guide! Not only is he fun to be around but he is very knowledgeable (as you observed!), engaging and loves sharing the history and nuances of our great State!! Delighted you had the good fortune for him to be your tour guide. It would be our pleasure for you to return in our glorious winter season! And, hope you will make that a must! Thanks again for taking time to share your trip details with us.
