Hugh’s 51 Weeks:51 Hits from the Past, Week 20

North to Alaska

Since I am currently in Alaska, I thought this song would be perfect. Originally sung by Johhny Horton for the movie of the same name, this version by Frankie Laine was recorded in 1962. I just love Frankie Laine.

If that link won’t play, try this version by Johnny Horton.

An extra song about Alaska by John Denver. I love visiting my sister and her family. They live near a small town called North Pole, which is about 15 miles from Fairbanks.


Join Hugh’s 51 Weeks:51 Songs from the Past, Week 20.

Road Scholar: Adventures in Lifelong Learning.  Educational adventures created by Elderhostel. One of my great aunts, who was a nun, went on several Elderhostel trips in the US. She loved the combination of traveling and learning. I haven’t been on a Road Scholar adventure but it is an option for group travel.
