Cruising the inside passage…

on our way to Glacier Bay. 

It is nearly 2300, the sun has just set…

 

 

…but, there is still enough daylight around.

Fences

Fencing husky puppies away from harm

on Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau.

A very temporary fence around Taji

after she had been spayed.

It was supposed to keep her quiet, not stretch run etc.

As soon as we stepped out the back door she was

jumping up against said fence and

in her six weeks of captivity

nearly pushed the fence over.

So much for keeping her quiet. 🙂

Some images captured during our

eight-hour wildlife safari into

Mt Denali National Park, June 2018.

We were told this was an Osprey.

My zoom was set at 210 mm

(315mm for a 35 mm equivalent).

 

 

  Dall Sheep…the tiny white dots on the mountain.

210mm/315mm

According to McKinley lodge staff

grizzly bears were wandering to roads by the dozen,

however this was as close as we came to one.

250/375

 

 

Finally, I think this is Mount Denali.

If not my apologies.

It was a difficult eight hours and I felt

much information did not reach the back of the bus.

130mm/195mm

Blues and yellows from all over.

This was new to me.

I was unaware we had coast guard boats, as such,

let alone yellow ones.

 

Air Arctic at Coldfoot airport.

A local tourist train.

Fairbanks airport I think.

My favourite form this set.

Loved the song or The Beatles.

Not so  sure now though.

We had probably the busiest year we will ever have in 2018.Late February we spent a weekend in Auckland

to celebrate the engagement of

our eldest son to his bride to be.

 

In June we were blessed with falling snow while

visiting the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier.

Most of us had not seen falling snow ever,

so a real delight.

A week or so later while cruising the Inside Passage

during  our stop at Juneau we flew

onto the Mendenhall Glacier to visit the huskies

and have a rife in a sled.

Another highlight.

 

 

  

We hardly seemed to be home

before preparations needed…

to be made for our road trip in New Zealand

prior to our son’s wedding.

A Māori Hāngī at the

Whakarewarewa Māori Village in Rotorua…

 

…and a visit to the Hobbit Movie Set at Matamata,

 

…were preludes to the big day.

 

 

The next morning back at

Auckland International Airport

for our flight home.
