My mom and Grandma had planned to take a cruise thru Alaska’s Inside Passage, but when my Grandma was unable to go, I ended up being gifted my favorite trip my mom and I have been on. She’s always gotten me to do things I wouldn’t have otherwise. For starters, I’d never been interested in going on a cruise but it was so NICE. A trip you don’t have to plan. We went ziplining over the Tongass Rainforest with bears and streams dotted beneath us; kayaking in a glacier carved lake which was really challenging to me but really beautiful; drinking at a fun, touristy gold rush saloon; watching the sunset as we drifted past mountains and waterfalls.
