[caption id="attachment_1696" align="aligncenter" width="450"] Banff, Alberta, Canada[/caption] So often on this blog I write of where I have been and what I have seen, but, I also have dreams of some huge road trips.  Perhaps my biggest dream is to go to Alaska via Alberta, British Columbia and Yukon Territory.  I have even gotten my free booklet from NorthtoAlaska.com entitled "The Ultimate North American Road Trip".  If I were to do this trip, the following would be my mapped route: My Ultimate Dream Trip Some of the sights I would want to see (all photos taken from the North to Alaska website -- since I have not been to these places yet...)
