Ketchikan & the Misty Fjords

Ketchikan & the Misty Fjords

On the last full day in Alaska I visited the city of Ketchikan. I was not in the actual town very long – just long enough to walk around and look at the shops. Most of my time was spent on a boat headed out to the Misty Fjords. It was a lovely day and great...
Glacier Bay National Park

Glacier Bay National Park

Another favorite part of my Alaska trip was Glacier Bay National Park. When we first entered Glacier Bay I was disappointed – it was foggy and drizzly. The fog was so thick that it was like we were sailing through clouds. As we got further into the park I...
Skagway and the White Pass Train

Skagway and the White Pass Train

Out of all the trips in Alaska, Skagway was one of my favorites. The little town tucked away in the inside passage – surrounded by beauty. The town itself is cute but still has a ton of jewelry stores (seriously what is it with these towns and jewelry stores?)...
Juneau – The rainy and foggy day in Alaska

Juneau – The rainy and foggy day in Alaska

Juneau – When plans change My first stop in Alaska was Juneau. It was raining/snowing and so foggy that you could not even see the shore – even though I knew it was right beside us. It was miserably cold and I found out that my 6 hour kayak trip was...

Highlights of Alaska

Packing for Alaska

Packing for Alaska

Tomorrow I leave for Alaska, but I’ve been packing and repacking my camera bag for a few weeks now. As a photographer, we all know the struggle of packing the perfect bag. Take too little – regret it … take too much – regret it. It’s probably easier to...
Last day of Capturing San Francisco

Last day of Capturing San Francisco

Lunch after Alcatraz See how it started (part 1 | part 2 | part 3) After the ferry ride back from Alcatraz, we headed to Boudin’s for lunch where I’m pretty sure almost every one ate half a load of sourdough! It truly is the best sourdough bread out there! I spent...
Muir Woods with Olympus

Muir Woods with Olympus

Muir Woods (Click here to read part one of Capturing San Francisco with Oylmpus Camera ) After leaving Battery park we headed to the mystical Muir Woods. The woods are breathtaking and we were so fortunate that not a lot of people were at the National park! It was...
Capturing San Francisco with Olympus

Capturing San Francisco with Olympus

How It Started In late December 2017, I received an email asking me if I would like to fly to San Francisco with Olympus Camera for an experience weekend. Olympus wanted to thank some of their users with a trip, shooting experiences, and hanging with all the...
Cades Cove

Cades Cove

“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.” ― John Muir This John Muir quotes pretty much sums up the last...
