Thumbs up Helicopters

My DW tried three times to get the helicopter to the glacier for dog sledding! It is frequently cancelled for weather.

Maybe that was why we had to keep going back ...

The first time she traded it for a regular helicopter flight, which she indeed found wonderful.

Finally the third cruise, she got to the dog camp atop the glacier.

There are so many great excursions in Alaska, but many of them are quite pricey. Be sure to budget for them.
