More from Ketchikan



We asked our tour guide to take us out of town and look at what we saw!  This is part of the Tongass  National Forest which covers most of southeastern Alaska.


There weren't many wildflowers blooming throughout our three weeks in Alaska.  They had a late spring like a lot of us did so they flowers weren't blooming in full force as I imagine they will be soon.


A nice little shelter near the lake.


Judging from the inside it's used a lot.


More beautiful reflections.  


And more beautiful artwork along the way.


That was my world only a short month ago.  What's happening in yours?

Alaska is on my bucket list. I loved the fireplace.

Great captures, I wonder if the wildflowers will be blooming next month when I visit.

We've been on Alaska cruises but haven't been to the interior. This trip will focus on Kenai Fjords and Denali. I'm hoping for good weather and great photographs.

I would so love to visit Alaska.

Hi again,

After much web surfing I found Alaska Wildland Adventures. They offered an all inclusive tour that had two nights inside Kenai Fjords and two nights inside Denali. We added a thrid night in Denali. We don't have to worry about getting around and the back country lodges offer a variety of activities such as hiking, kayaking or mountain biking. Pricey but hopefully worth it.
I look forward to your preview and you'll know the end of Juy how our adventure turned out.

Beautiful, wild Alaska! Great shots of this pristine area.

Nice shelter. Looks like a great place to build a big fire and warm up after canoeing on the lake.
