Where in the world is The News-Reporter...

... by land, air, and sea in Alaska and the Yukon


Al and Sharlene Zima showed The News-Reporter to their tour guide on their recent journey to the country’s 49th state. The Zimas flew to Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska, where they boarded the McKinley Explorer Train located at the base of Mount McKinley, now known as Mount Denali. They took a wilderness tour and viewed the 20,320-ft. peak, saw four moose, lots of caribou, dall sheep, and a grizzly bear and cub. In Fairbanks, the couple found panning for gold to be very exciting. They flew to Dawson City, “the Paris of the North,” and boarded another train called the Wite Pass-Yukon Route for the highlight of the tour. They arrived at Skaway, Alaska, to board the ship “Volendam” for four days and traveled on the Inside Passage, saw glaciers, and finally flew home from Vancouver. This News-Reporter is 3,484 miles from home. Al and Sharlene Zima showed The News-Reporter to their tour guide on their recent journey to the country’s 49th state.
