“Alaskan Odyssey” is the title of the second Trinity Travel Talk by Steuart and Anita Kellington to be held tomorrow (Friday) at 7-30 pm at Trinity Methodist Church and Community Hub, Parson Lane, Clitheroe.
Steuart said: “We really enjoyed our visit to this big state where the countryside is on a very big scale. At one point, our Satnav gave us the direction “Turn left in 234 miles”!
“On leaving Anchorage airport, we drove via the huge Matanuska Glacier, featured in our photograph,to Denali National Park for wild tundra scenery and wildlife, including grizzly bears. Returning to the west coast we drove to Seward along the beautiful Turnagain Arm, named by Captain Bligh of HMS Bounty fame, and watched the tidal bore from several locations. Finally, we took a cruise south along the Alaskan coast to Vancouver visiting Glacier Bay, Skagway, Juneau, the Mendenhall Glacier and Ketchikan, observing spectacular glaciers and learning about the gold rush days.
The third Trinity Travel Talk on Friday, December 2nd, is about islands much nearer home as the Kellingtons describe their visits to Guernsey, Herm, Alderney and Sark.
Admission to Trinity Travel Talks is £5 payable at the door (no tickets), including interval refreshments, with net proceeds for Trinity Church Development Fund (Charity number 1129609).
