Off to Alaska

Today, I will be flying to Seattle for an Alaskan cruise. The cruise leaves tomorrow and goes to many of the great cities in southeast Alaska. We spend the first day at sea and then the fun really starts. We will cruise Glacier Bay National Park, then stop in Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, and Victoria, British Columbia before returning to Seattle.

Of course I will be doing a lot of birding and hope to add many new life birds since I have never been to the Pacific Northwest. I have planned to do a little birding with the President of the Juneau Audubon Society while on a whale-watching cruise, and I hope to do at least a little more birding at every stop. I have also rented a 80-400 mm zoom lens for my camera so hopefully I will have many awesome pictures to share with everyone when I get back!

I will have very limited internet access but hope to post some updates at least a couple of times during my trip!
