Heading to the Midnight Sun

Today’s post features a couple of images I captured on my last trip to Alaska … aka, “The Land of the Midnight Sun”. This trip was a bit different than my earlier trips to Alaska … caught a ride on the M/V Columbia, one of the ferries of the Alaska State Ferry fleet. It was an interesting trip, and lots of time for sightseeing along the Inside Passage!

Here are a couple of images I captured aboard the ferry as we left Washington (the Alaska State Ferry port is in Bellingham, Washington):

Not long after leaving port:

Lots of memories from this trip … hoping to do it again one of these days!
