As I mentioned in my last BRT, I went to AK for about eight days. I just got back here today, and I’m exhausted. But Alaska was so awesome! Here are some pictures from my camera.
This moose was in a small lake near our cabin in Talkeetna. We didn’t get this close- just the work of the zoom lense on the camera. Ha.
Some sort of rodent at Denali National Park. We never identified it. But hey, it’s still cute, right?
Me by Savage Creek (Denali)
The most dangerous creature in Alaska…Paco the chihuahua.
We went on a plane on Tuesday over Denali. This was taken shortly after the plane took off.
This was also from the plane. Awesome glacier!
The next four pics are from the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center, which I LOVED.
After Talkeetna, we stayed in Seward.
This eagle, along with three others, lived right near our cabin. It was really cool! We found three of their feathers, and in the evening we would often hear them screeching.
These last pics are from when we took an 8-hour boat tour through the Kenai Fjords. Definetly my favorite part of the trip!
The very first animal we saw- a sea otter!
A colony of Steller’s Sea Lions
We saw a pod of orcas!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEE! Anyway, this picture is an adult with a baby. One of the orcas also got really close to our boat! I squealed like a teenage girl at a pop concert when I saw them. Literally.
Harbor seals on the ice
Northwestern (or Northwest. I forget) Glacier. This was our final destination before turning around. You might be able to see a harbor seal in the middle of this picture!
“Amazing” and “awesome” just don’t do justice to this. This was the second or third Humpback whale we saw, but man, she was showing OFF. As well as the breaching, she showed her fluke, blew from her blowhole, and waved her flippers. Legit whale aerobics.
As you can see, this was such a fun and memorable trip. I hope you guys are having a great summer! Plus- I read some good books in AK, so my next BRT will be great. Bye!
P.S.- Happy early Fourth of July! 🇺🇸
