Back From Alaska


Wow, it has been a long time since I have had the opportunity to post here on the blog. I have spent the last week on an Alaskan cruise out of Seattle. It was an amazing trip with many awesome birds and other wildlife along the way. There are also so many scenic landscapes to shoot that it is hard to decide where to point your camera!

Although the trip wasn't a birding trip, I did manage to squeeze in quite a bit of birding. I added new species at every stop and ended up have 105 species for the trip. This included 39 life birds which is the most lifers I have had in a week in a very very long time. It was an unbelieveable trip and I will be writing a series of posts to tell you all about it. These should start to appear on the blog starting tomorrow.

The photo above was taken at Glacier Bay National Park and is really a good example of the scenery that you observe from the cruise ship the whole time you are aboard.

Okay, I'm a little jealous. I've always wanted to do a cruise up there. I've always heard how beautiful it is and that photo is a tease isn't it? Its gorgeous!
