From Washington to Alaska, via the Scenic Route

Yesterday, I posted some images made along Alaska’s Inside Passage in winter. I had a good response from that post, along with some questions about the ferry. So, today I’m posting one more post about the ferry. I published this post a couple of years ago, but I’m re-publishing it today, along with a few […]

Ferry View of the Inside Passage (Re-post)

(This post originally published in September 2010) Over the past couple of days, I’ve been chatting on Twitter with a couple of people about travel in Alaska. During our chats, travel by the Alaskan ferry (Alaska Marine Highway) came up and there seems to be some interest in this form of travel there. So I’ve […]

Fun Friday: Busted!

Today’s Fun Friday post comes from the shoreline along the Endicott Arm, in Alaska, during a 10-day boat trip in 2006. As we cruised the Endicott Arm, on our way to the Dawes Glacier, we saw several Black Bears (Ursus americanus) as they foraged along the shoreline. At one point, we came upon a sow […]

Black Bear Tug-O-War

I’m taking a step backward today … just realized I didn’t post a short video from Anan Creek, so I’m going to post it today. When we were at Anan Creek, my daughter, Jami, shot this short (~1 minute) video of two adult black bears playing “Tug-O-War” with a salmon. As you can see from […]

Kasaan Village, Alaska (Part 2)

Last week I posted some images of the long house and totems, from Kasaan Village, Alaska. Today’s post, Part 2, contains more totems found in the old growth forest surrounding the long house. This first totem depicts a bear, a bit weather-beaten, but still in reasonably good shape:       And another nearby totem […]

Kasaan Village, Alaska

After leaving Anan Creek, we began heading towards our final destination, Ketchikan. But on the way, we were able to make a short stop at the old totem village of Kasaan, Alaska. Kasaan is located along the Inside Passage, on Prince of Wales Island. You may have seen my post on totems that I shared […]

A Different Kind of Fisherman

After all the black bear images posted this past two weeks, I want to share another kind of fisherman we saw at Anan Creek, Alaska:       … an adult Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus). If you remember my bald eagle post from my 2006 Anan Creek visit, there were many bald eagles to photograph […]

More Fishing Bears

And here’s one final posting on the black bears of Anan Creek. This series of images was taken as a black bear, directly below me, walked out into the creek and quickly caught a salmon as it rushed by:                 Still got lots of black bear images from […]

Fishing Experts

In today’s post, I’ll share some images made of black bears catching fish at Anan Creek, during my recent Alaska trip. Bears are excellent fishing machines, both blacks and grizzlies. At Anan Creek, the creek was raging when we visited this year, due to the excessive amounts of rainfall that the Inside Passage received during […]
