I n the fall of 2015, my wife Michelle and I took our two dogs and headed to Skagway, Alaska. It was an epic trip for our family, ful- fi lling a dream of a lifetime. As long as I can remember, Alaska has been on Michelle’s bucket list. She had been look- ing forward to seeing glaciers, the Northern Lights (me too), brown bears and moose. I lived in Juneau as a kid and wanted to relive some of that, but what I really wanted to see was the look on Michelle’s face when she saw her first glacier. Our dogs enjoy traveling with us to faraway places. GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2016 71
