A sailboat coming out through the very narrow opening into Fords Terror as we are coming in.  This place is amazing – huge granite walls, waterfalls and because it is very challenging to access, the place to ourselves last month!

I had a great time Friday with my friends at Exit Glacier Guides doing one of their climbing trips.  It was so much fun, and amazing to drop into a beautiful glacier like this!  They were nice enough to set me up with an anchor at the bottom of the crevasse so that I could safely hang out and photograph, what a treat!

Back from a fun photo tour in Southeast Alaska! Here is a brown bear sow with cubs running from a boar (male) bear last week at Pack Creek, Alaska.

Home from a fun bear and whale photo tour in Southeast Alaska!  The weather was great – warm with lots of sun.  Well, it was great for people, not as helpful for wildlife photography.  We visited some new places for me and spent two nights at Pack Creek which was a bonus!  I’ll have more photos from the trip for the days ahead.

We are all packed up and ready to catch a flight home to Alaska in the morning.  Excited to be home, but sad to be missing all the wildlife in Arizona!  Nice problem to have.
