Oh those views are breathtaking. I really do want to get to Alaska someday soon. I would just the views I am sure.

Ok I have to agree w/ Rebecca - These are BREATHTAKING! Oh how I'd love to go.
Now the originals are my absolute favorites. I'd never seen the accented edges before, but they run a close 2nd to the posters edges.

I truly enjoyed looking at these magnificent views from your trip. Our son took one with my folks a few years back. You've inspired me to go too some day soon.
