PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/21/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Cook Inlet • Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, Alaska
Notes: What started as a once in a lifetime trip, became an epic adventure for us. The trip started out with the excitement of exploring the beautiful landscape between Anchorage and Seward. With an entire day to make the three hour drive, we took our time and stopped at a few local parks and many roadside pull-overs on the way. The dynamic views reminded us of Hawaii, where the ridge line spikes to high elevations in short distances from volcanic or tectonic events. The differences in habitats are breath-taking, from tundra like lowlands, to mid-range coniferous forests sprinkled with Aspens. The aqua-green glacial creeks, turned milky with glacial silt, flow to the rocky coastline. Extreme tides left huge sandbars and mad flats that would suck the boots off your feet. Most enjoyable was seeing several new species of birds on a small boat trip: Rhinoceros Auklet, Crested Puffin, Horned Puffin, Black-legged Kittiwake, Glaucous-winged Gull and Pigeon Guillemot. After a couple of days, it was time to meet our group back in Anchorage. From there we ventured off in a couple of little five seater planes to Lake Clark to see the Brown Bears. A couple of days later, came time for the boat ride to”Puffinland’, as we joyfully called it. Just such a trip has been a bucket list item for me for a long time. My list is now shorter as a result. It was a true blessing to share that experience with the best of friends and great partnership, and on such a beautiful day.
