Alaska Wildlife

One of the joys of spending time in Alaska is getting up close and personal with lots of wildlife. Not wanting to hit anything that might wander across the highway, we always had our eyes peeled looking for animals.

These were all spotted along the highway.

My nephew-in-law is a civilian contractor for the US Coast Guard, so has access to one of the USCG fishing boats in Auke Bay (just outside Juneau). On our last night in town, we took a boat out to see if we could spot any whales. We were not disappointed. In our 2 hours on the water, we spotted 3 pods of Orcas, including one with a baby. Oh, and a group of sea lions enjoying the late evening sunshine.
