NORTH TO ALASKA/GLACIER BAY NATIONAL PARK: A New Giveaway!

UPDATE: CONGRATULATIONS TO ms.texas, OUR LATEST WINNER!
If you haven't had the opportunity to visit Alaska yet, this is the optimal time for this spectacular vacation whether by cruise ship or on your own. Alaska is truly God's gift to the world and I can't wait to get back. We've talked about going outside of our comfort zone in Chapter Two Blog. I flew on a float plane during our trip - which is typically not something I'd do! I sucked it up and glad I did. The unparalleled aerial views of expansive glaciers were amazing. Where else could one spot moose, wolves, whales and mountain sheep on the same trip?
To kick off Alaskan cruise/vacation season, I'm giving away "The Love Boat" Season One, Volume One DVD. All you have to do is read an eHow travel article I wrote and view my photos(see link below) about a trip to Glacier Bay. Comment on something you've seen in Alaska or would like to see based on this article: http://www.ehow.com/how_5013518_see-bay-national-park-day.html Extra entry earned for becoming a follower. A third entry for twittering about this contest. One entry per household, 18 yrs. & up. Ends on Wednesday, May 27th at Midnight PST.
Good Luck,
Sheryl
