Yup me too, I grew up in Center Line. Moved to Roseville. We bought a empty lot in Macomb twp but never built on it. Sold the house and the lot then moved to GA.

So you pretty happy with the 5D4 and A7rii? I had the 5d4 and sold it. Thinking about getting the A73..

If you're a train buff, White Pass Summit Excursion out of Skagway is a morning well spent.
Has good photo ops along the route.

i recommend this as well. cost is high but the views are breath taking and was the best I've seen in my life. (note I dont travel much :P)

pictures arent good, you gotta be there to feel, hear, and see for yourself. these are from a moving bus. stops will be depended on your bus driver if you are doing the cruises' excursion.

sorry to bum you about this, and for giving you a mislead information. the above pictures are from Yukon. I did the train+yukon that costed about $300/person

it's expensive, but I only had to pay for myself so it wasn't too bad. the experience is what makes it worth the cost. BUT... if you are with family... it might be better to use it towards future trips heh

a cheaper route would be to plan and do the excursion yourself with out the cruise. but doing that will cause lots of planning and making sure you get back on time. even with the cruise excursion, we got back at the last minute (well about 30 minutes before ship gets ready to deport). with the cruise, the bus drivers will take advantage of whatever time and will want to make as many stops as they can and they can contact the cruiseline letting them know that they still have passengers and are on the way back. the excursion I did took the whole time in skagaway, you won't have time to shop or spend time in the downtown area, which is nice too. If you do the railway alone you will be back to have some spare time.

these are from the train. if you do go on the train, I'd recommend standing outside as much as permitted. make sure you wear a nice jacket. staying inside, sitting and just looking out from the window is boring and a waste. going outside gives you a better experience and view.

Ron, in Juneau, I've enjoyed the Mt Roberts Tramway, at the top is a great view of the Port. Also the Whale watching was great, probably need to take an excursion as we did.
As mentioned, any travel by train should be awesome scenery as you will see from your ship all along the way from Vancouver.
I enjoyed the shopping in Juneau, small shops all easy to walk to.
In Ketchikan , I've mainly only walked to the local shops along Creek Street but was able to get my best ever photo of a Bald Eagle while in town, they can show up any time.
I've not been to any of the other areas you have listed. In my 2 visits, 3 weeks total time in Alaska I enjoyed every minute of being there.

British Isles cruise on a Princess ship. I won't ever get on another Princess ship.
This was only part of the fun.

love the silhouette and orange sky.

I do loved the princess. I went on the grand princess and the average passenger age was about 50+ and not many kids running around and screaming. was a calm and relaxing cruise which was what I hoped for. few shows I went to were fun and entertaining. food was so-so.... overall experience I would go on princess again but would like to try others first.
