I spent September 10 - 17th in the Yakutat Borough area, my first ever visit to Alaska. Why did I wait so long? What did I experience? Rain - lots of it, no mosquitoes, icebergs in the bay, coho to the fly, a break down on a transportation vehicle, coastal brown bears, more coho and some great meals.

Coho to the fly (black rabbit strip leech, heavily weighted)

Sky Water Plant Natural landscape Snow

Spectacular vistas - Mt. Elias at 18,008 feet to the summit, picture from about 6 feet above sea level.

I rode the bus from E'burg to SeaTac and the reverse coming home. My wife picked me up at CWU and asked "what's your next big adventure", a one word response "Alaska". Why in the world did I wait until in my mid-70's to go?
