Alaska 1997, June 6 to July 7

The last time we visited Alaska in 1986. In 1993 we have been close to Alaska when we sailed on the Bering Strait on a trip from Anadyr in Siberia to the north. This trip we focussed on the arctic part of Alaska

This was my first ever web page, thus not everything is technical allright,  I am sorry for the inconvenience, Perhaps I will find time sometimes to improve the site. But have fun, we have had a lot of fun this trip! Nearly all links will open in new windows!
