Photo Safari in Juneau

I was originally going to post just one photo a day from our Alaskan trip, but I think it will take me over a year to finally show everything I like if it's only one picture a day ;-) Below are the pictures I took from our photo safari in Juneau with Gastineau Guiding. I was a bit disappointed with the whale watch tour part because all we saw were the flukes and no breaching, but apparently, that is not very common to see. With a two hour tour in the boat, it's definitely not enough time to see the active whales playing :( Nevertheless, Bobby and I had a blast and learned a lot about Alaska's wild flowers, Mendenhall Glacier, humpback whales, bald eagles, mean harbor seals, about the local people in Juneau, salmon, porcupines, and beavers from our wonderful tourguide Jim. Enjoy the pictures :)

xoxo

Amazing photos, Cory! How did you get that picture of the two eagles in midair? That's a fantastic shot! Also love the sea lions on the buoy. Keep snapping! s

bobby reminds me of anderson a little bit-the way he supports you and has his own creative eye too! makes it fun. :)

The pictures are awesome!!! I especially like the one of the moss on the tree, it looks like a person laying on the tree covered by moss.
