WE SUGGEST YOU CLICK ON MR. HORTON'S VOCAL VIDEO TO
ACCOMPANY YOU WHILE YOU LOOK AT OUR MOVIE
PUT ON YOUR HATS, COATS AND MITTENS AND LET'S HEAD
NORTH TO ALASKA


NOW PRESENTING MOM'S MOVIE OF SOME OF THEIR PICTURES


Way up north (north to Alaska) way up north (north to Alaska)
North to Alaska a-go-north the rush is on
Big Sam left Seattle in the year of '92 with George Pratt his partner
and brother Bill, too. They crossed the Yukon River and found the bonanza gold
Below that old White Mountain just a little southeast of Nome
Sam crossed the majestic mountains to valleys far below
He talked to his team of huskies as he mushed on through the snown
With the northern lights a-runnning wild in the land of the midnight sun
Yes Sam McCord was a mighty man in the year of '91.
Where the river is windin' big nuggets they're findin'
North to Alaska

THANK YOU FOR VISITING TODAY.

  1. I love, love, love that song. Great slide show C, I reconize some of the places.

    Just an fyi, Johnny Horton's geography was a little off. If White Mountain was "southeast of Nome" it would be in the ocean. Nome sits right on a beautiful black sand beach. It's one of the places in AK I would love to visit again, the people there were so friendly.

  2. Oh my gosh....Alaska is now calling me!! But wait, I don't like cold...what can I do? I guess sit and enjoy your slideshow for a second time. In some spots, it looks just like my Colorado Stomping Grounds [Silverton, Colorado]. And just look at that flowering bush---it's yellow, and looks like wisteria?....is that a wisteria? Whatever it is, it's just absolutely gorgeous. I so loved this song and I really, REALLY loved your video.

  7. Looks like your Mom had a wonderful trip. Alaska is on my list of places that I'd like to see some day. Your Mom's pictures just made me want to, more.

    I haven't though of that song in years. North to Alaska and The Battle of New Orleans were two songs I would sing along with, constantly, when I was a kid.
