More Alaska

You can click on any image to see it full-size, which is necessary for the whale, and the bald eagle.

Orca, from the balcony of my suite on the ship. There were at least three of them.



The old part of Ketchikan. I bought a beautiful totemic print from a Tlingit master carver and painter.



This is only one of the many bald eagle shots I got. They are majestic birds.

I have heard this is some of the most beautiful country one can see.

Your photos show that, my only problem would be the climate.

I've seen a lot of whales off the Oregon coast. I love watching them! :)

How beautiful! The old part of Ketchikan reminds me a bit of Kennebunkport, Maine.

Let's Talk, there was a lot of ice in the fiords still - iceburgs the size of small garages, burgie-bits the size of small cars, smaller pieces too. The water was cold enough that the snorkel expedition used dry-suits.

Larry, the Inside Passage, and Coastal Alaska, is really similar to Seattle in weather. But the interior is cold - lot of snow in winter. Lovely in summer.

Suzie-q, we saw Orcas and Grey Whales, but no Humpbacks. They are amazing!

Weezielou, I've not swum with dolphins. It's next on my list.

Coffee, thank you.

Tree, whaling ports have a similarity, I think.

Wow, what great pictures. I love the village one and of course the orcas are amazing.

It looks so beautiful up there, too bad it's so cold, and there's all that darkness in winter.
