Alaskan Cruise and Washington Itinerary (17 Days)

This itinerary covered a two-and-a-half-week trip covering both Washington State as well as a small chunk of Alaska, where the latter was done on an Alaskan Cruise of the so-called Inner Passage. It was a trip where we tested what we could do while Tahia was still a small baby (hence the cruise, which both Julie and I were not big fans of). However, with Julie's Mom coming along on this trip (to see relatives in the Seattle area), it was also an opportunity for us to "divide and conquer" so-to-speak as on some days, Julie's Mom would help watch our little girl while Julie and I would hike, while on other days, we'd take Tahia with us. We also visited a couple of friends (one from work and another from high school), who also were residents in the Seattle area. Indeed, there was quite a bit of sightseeing and catching up amongst friends and family.

Lastly, in terms of what we covered, you'll see in the summary below that we managed to go waterfalling in the Olympic Peninsula as well as Mt Rainier. We also managed to visit at least one notable waterfall on the Alaskan Cruise near Juneau as well as some incidental ones in Glacier Bay.
