First visit back

I grew up in Cordova and this was my first visit back since 1975. It was every bit as beautiful as I remembered...and then some. My family and I lived out at Mile 13, at the airport. It was very common to see moose, bear and eagles on our way into town.

    Thanks for the Cordova tips, Cindy, especially the information on the glaciers. I hope to make it there some day. Hope you get to sleep until noon each day. :)
