Caye Caulker Harbor

Two Different Harbors

It’s about time I post photos for Twitter’s #FriFotos challenge.  This week’s theme is HARBORS.  I’ve picked a couple of harbors that probably couldn’t more different from one another. Seward, Alaska – Small Boat Harbor Seward happens to be one of the ice free ports in Alaska and because of that stays busy year-round, but […]

Sierra Negra Caldera

Hiking into a Volcanic Caldera

During my trip to the Galapagos, we stayed three nights on Isabela Island.  All the islands of the Galapagos were formed by volcanoes and Isabela is no different, but it was the one island where we ventured up to, around the rim of, and into a volcanic caldera.  Isabela is also where I learned the […]

Kenai Fjords Landscape

Kenai Fjords Tour – Part 2

As promised I want to share some photos from my Kenai Fjords trip.  I want to build up to the grand finale…the sea life…so, to start I thought I’d share some of the landscape of the area.  Although the weather was just mediocre the stunning greens really stood out. Kenai Fjords – Part 1

DNP - Sunset Reflecting on Mountain

Sunset in Denali National Park and Preserve

Getting a sunset photo in summer (and even in the spring) could be challenging unless you want to stay up very, very late.  In the middle of the summer there would be a good chance of catching a sunset and sunrise within one hour of each other.  There wasn’t that much daylight while I was […]

Wrangell Narrows

2012 Week #22

When I decided to take and post photos every week this year, I intentionally didn’t set any rules.  I never said I’d only pick my best photos.  Instead I have focused on my favorites or even most interesting.  This week I definitely choose photos I thought were interesting because of the story they tell. To […]

DNP - Caribou Prancing Across Road

Prancing Caribou in Denali National Park and Preserve

Caribou are interesting animals.  I found out a couple new tidbits about caribou on this trip. They have hollow hair which helps them swim and keep warm. They keep two temperatures…one for their core body and one for their legs.  In extreme cold, they are able to redirect heat from their legs to their core. […]

DNP - Grizzly Sow and Cubs

Grizzly Bears in Denali National Park and Preserve

Two of the hardest animals to spot in Denali National Park are grizzly bears and wolves.  During my trip I missed out on the wolves, but I did see a grizzly sow and her two cubs.  The little cubs were amazing, so in addition to my photos I snapped a quick video.  They really seemed […]
