Re: On our Way to Alaska!!

Update!!

We made it home last night. Had a great trip! We went to Valdez, Ak. and saw some amazing sights. We camped at Allison point campground on the road to the pipeline terminal. The salmon were running in Salomon Gulch and watched bears and hugemungous sea lions feeding. We went on a guided sea kayak trip out to Columbia Glacier. We were the only ones on our trip! We used the Anadyr Guide Service and highly recommend them!! We talked to some folks who had travelled Alaska and they talked us out of Fairbanks and Denali. We headed back to Canada and travelled the Cassiar Highway down from Watson Lake to Meziadin Junction. From there, we headed west to Stewart/Hyder. That was amazing!! We saw bears feeding on salmon at the Fish Creek Viewing Area. We camped the night up high at Salmon Glacier. In the morning, we almost got trapped by a road washout. VanBear Pig got us out o.k. We headed home down through Smithers, B.C. and into Washington at the Ousoyoos (I know I butchered the spelling, my apologies). We stop in Missoula and bought a new canoe in preparation for our next visit. The Cassiar Highway wasn't in bad shape as some as said. I guess it's all relative. Enjoy the pics...

Re: On our Way to Alaska!! and Finally made it Home!!

I wish I could impart some Ansel Adams like wisdom but in reality, I'm new to photography. My cousin is a serious amateur and he came to visit us in Wyoming a few years back. I spent a few days taking him around the area on photo excursions and kind of got the bug. I bought a Canon EOS 50D a week before our trip and the lady at BestBuy only had a few lenses for the Canon. It came with a standard kit lense and I bought the 70-300mm, f/4-5.6 IS USM they had. Most of the pictures were shot in the auto modes of mountains and action. I was surprised at how well they came out. I think a 'Bazooka' lense, as my wife calls it, is in my future. I see you are a bit of a photographer, any advice?

peace, bob

Re: On our Way to Alaska!! and Finally made it Home!!

Thanks to all for the comments. We did have a great time. It got me thinking about possibly hosting a get together up here. We've got some great roads to 4WD on and some cool campsites in the Beartooths and also in the McCullough peaks area. There is a herd of wild horses which are simply amazing to see. Maybe next year....

Bob and Amy
