I just got back to Juneau after a two week trip out on the Moku Iki, an Albin 28, in Southeast Alaska. My friend Danny and I spent the time doing a slow loop of Admiralty Island, and looking for the places that we have overlooked in the past or wanted to go to but for some reason could not. We also went to places we know and love. There is a no-name bay that we went to, just south of wood spit, to start, and I'd been there before with Altair, just for a night and without exploring much, but this time we stopped for a bit of a look. It was late afternoon and the darkness was coming, but we took a skiff up the river and found some bears! I got this shot of the boat as we wound our way down the river and through the meadow back. We continued on...
Then we went to the back bay of Port Houghton, one of my favorite places of all, and walked the river there. We saw tons more salmon and then spotted a wolf!

But this one is! A willow Ptarmigan
