These are the days to go explore uncharted territory in the
middle part of Kelp Bay located in Admiralty Island. I went exploring on a guest hike with my friend Kathy, Sue the
Expedition Leader & Gretchen as the Naturalist. It was a lot of fun.
A beautiful warm Alaskan summer day not sunny, but a wee bit overcast
was the conditions. It’s beautiful
to be amongst nature into the forest without any clear paved man made paths
crossing fallen down trees, climbing up cliffs & walking in the
meadow. This is the “real” Alaskan
adventure you seek in these parts where the perk is the wildlife viewing of a
couple of bears in the distance on the shore across the river from the meadow I
was standing on, another couple of them in the snow of a mountain with
waterfalls & not to forget the ones out in the distance upstream. Bear
viewing was at its prime today, however a 200 mm lens didn’t capture the shot,
oh well I enjoyed just watching instead. Beauty awaits every corner of the
expedition. We stumbled across a
few skeletons of birds & a bear. The wildflowers were amazing today
too. I enjoyed capturing them
threw the lens. I enjoyed my time on shore to rejuvenate my spirits as my
Alaskan adventure is winding down.
It was nice to escape the crazy world of the boat & to be at peace
with nature for a couple of hours listing to silence of the land inhaling the
beautiful aromas of the forest, wildflowers & meadows. It was a beautiful afternoon for sure!
