Hello Folks.

Just got back from Alaska. Had a great week visiting with family and friends, viewing all kinds of incredible wildlife and catching enough salmon to feed my entire parish! Here's a few highlights.....
A big glacier at Johnstone Bay....provides some serious natural air conditioning!
The beautiful Kenai River!
Me and a heavy load of healthy sockeyes!
A big bald eagle overlooking Skilak Lake.
Look close and you'll see a grizzly bear roaming the beach.
A mammoth Coho salmon!
Fishing for rainbow trout in the bear infested Russian River.
A bear claw mark at fish camp.

Also saw some big humpback whales, sea lions, moose and puffins, but couldn't get any good pics.

God Bless.

I just have one question . . . "How come you kept those minnows, anyway?":wink:

Great pictures that made me homesick. I lived on the Kenai Peninsula for 20 years and in Anchorage for 5. Hoping to get back there soon.
