Another Travelogue

OK, I guess it's time for another travelogue, this was from 2004, and was our first starry-eyed trip to Alaska. The first picture is, of course, Mt. Rainier, in Washington state, and it set the tone for our trip.  The next two are from the town of Ketchikan, Alaska, the first being a shot of arriving in the early morning, before the town was even awake. The next is of the tourist traps along the main drag, but taken from the bridge coming into town. The next two are from the environs of Juneau, Alaska, near where we had a fabulous salmon bake (unlike anything else). We had to walk a little ways, to get to the falls, but it was definitely worth it. And the final two are from Butchert Gardens, near Victoria, Canada, or what can you do with an old, abandoned strip mine, with the final picture from a concert of Celtic music, which we enjoyed, before heading back. Really, just a bunch of great memories.


  1. The pictures of the village and the rivulet in the forest are really amazing! I adore wild places, and the streamlet scenes remind me of the mountain river landscape in oil I sold a couple of years ago.

  2. In truth, Stella, I also painted that scene of the waterfall, and it now hangs in our living room.
