Orcas on cruise to Berner's Bay

Today we took a 4-hour cruise up to Berner's Bay with the Audubon club of Juneau. It was really spectacular. These photos don't do it justice, but we saw bald eagles, gulls, pipers, oystercatchers, loons, ducks, sea stars, harbor seals, sea lions, dall's porpoises, humpback whales, and the hi-light was seeing a pod of 5-6 orcas "play" right by the boat. We are loving life in Alaska. Posted by Picasa Filed in mammals

Mt Bradley (Mt Jumbo) trail

We went up the Mt. Bradley trail yesterday. Once we got to the bridge and falls, it was too icey on the trail to continue. It was a beautiful day to be outside. Posted by Picasa
