Whale Tails and Travel Plans

Humpback Whale Tail, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska.

This was one of two whales who put on an amazing show for us last week.  When they weren’t breaching, they were swinging their tails back and forth throwing lots of water around!  It was awesome!

We have been watching for an opportunity to head back down to the Vancouver area to add summer coverage to the Vancouver photos we captured last winter.  Well the forecast shows most of Alaska receiving rain for the next week, while the Vancouver area looks like a week of sun.  We started looking for bargains and thanks to Priceline, buses and frequent flier miles, we were able to put together an inexpensive, very last minute trip.  We threw this together on Sunday!

I scheduled this post in advance so that it would be posting while we are on the plane flying south.  It is going to be a busy, whirlwind week in which we will spend time in Vancouver, Whistler and Victoria!  Probably won’t get much sleep, but hoping for lots of photography!  I usually post updates from the road, and will do my best on this trip as well.

  1. Have a great time down in my neck of the woods. The forecast looks awesome for the week. You really should consider checking out the Cascades or Mt Rainier before flying back to Alaska, especially if the weather sucks up there.

  2. Man I love the details in the image. The sweeping up of the land in the background and the downward spray from the tail works together really well here. Have a great trip.

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    That is a great idea Jon, but this is a very short trip, just a week. We will have to do that next time!
