Homer and Denali

In early August 2005 a few friends and I traveled to Alaska for the first time.  Though our visit was rather short, and we experienced a lot of rain and a trip-ending injury for Nancy & Keith, the adventure was still grand!  Below are a few photos from our August 2-11, 2005 trip to Homer and Denali.
