Most everyone has arrived in the land of the Midnight Sun. The tour officially starts tomorrow, and the weather gods look to be cooperating so far.
Cat Herder doesn't enjoy the slog of commercial airline travel and all the gear it takes to kick off a tour remotely, but the 49th State, and all the Parkwest "cats", are worth it!
The Alyeska Resort is a great place to start this tour with its gorgeous mountain views, aerial tram ride to 4-star dining, and convenient location, just a 45-minute, scenic drive up the Turnagain Arm from Anchorage.. Tomorrow we hike, we brief, we get to know each other, and let the adventure begin!
