Sharing moments in time…

Bummer! Oh well….on to the next adventure


As I mentioned in my last post, we were worried about the weather in the wilderness area that we were going to.  As it turns out the weather got even worse – to the extent that it pretty much destroyed the camp that we were going to.  Our guide and his guests were stranded in an awful storm but were finally able to get a plane in to take everyone out – tired, wet, but unharmed.  Unfortunately, our bear adventure has been cancelled.  We’re kind of scrambling to figure out what we are going to do while we are here but it looks like we’ll be able to go out to a lodge on Lake Clark for at least two days with the Bears.  In the meantime, I’ll try to give you some updates on where we go from here…..you gotta love Alaska.

This photo is the closest we’ve gotten to our quest so far…..

In the meantime, we’ll have put up with the lousy scenery around here…….

  2. I spent a month in Denali earlier this summer and it was beatiful. But the weather was unpredictable to the point of being dangerous some days. Glad you’re safe.

    • Hi Megan,
      Our Scottish friend Ross is on his way up to the Denali area right now…..we are still safe and sound in Homer and headed across the bay for a relaxing stay at another lodge before moving on to Seward. We managed to find some eagles, otters, moose, bear and more to photograph so its been a great trip despite the changes in plan. Hope you stay tuned in for our wildlife tour of this part of Alaska!
