The second in a series of video travel journals of Alaska celebrates the beautiful drive from Anchorage to Homer, AK.

This is the second in a series of video travel journals I made during a recent trip to Alaska. The ambient sound is hostess Elaine Rhode playing the big singing bowl you see early on. I also included the various unique sounds of rivers and creeks.

The video is sometimes just me sticking the camera out the window as we zipped up Turnagain Arm of Cook’s Inlet passing jaw dropping scenery.

The magic hasn’t worn off, no matter what else I see and cherish…
