In 1994 we flew to Vancouver and hired a car to take a trip through B.C.and Alberta before returning to Vancouver to join the SS Rotterdam of the Holland America Line for a cruise through the Inside Passage. It was a great trip, although too short through the Inside Passage. Still we now know that one day we just have to go back to Alaska and see more of it.
Because this was a round trip and VT did not have all the places on it I put the inofrmation on this page .
We saw lots of these lovely little prairie dogs in the Badlands - I came home with so many photos of them!!

    Margaret, this is certainly the area I would love to visit. Gastown sounds fascinating. Your photographs certainly entice the viewer. Thanks for this marvelous tour.
