5/16: A Very Long Travel Day

We were up early for our 6:15am flight (it was originally at 8:00am when we booked it – thank you, Delta).  Lou pushed the luggage cart across the street from the hotel to the check-in counter, and we were soon on our way.

Lots of camera gear - one suitcase each with our clothes for a month

It took us over 17 hours to get from Bangor, Maine to Juneau, Alaska.  We had a 5 hour layover in Detroit, and 3 hours in Seattle. Our flights went like clockwork – a very slow clock.

The Goldbelt Hotel - not fancy, but fine for our weary bodies - it's still not totally dark at 9pm

We were met in Juneau by a representative of Un-Cruise who drove us to our hotel.  We were both asleep shortly after checking in.
