Reflections of Alaska, part one

Just south of Skagway
            The scenery stuns your senses in southeast Alaska, and to travel you have to have a plane or a boat, except for a few miles of road and highway in the towns, not between them. That pace gives you time to spend more time looking, and the watery world multiplies the beauty in reflections.
Tug hauling freight north of Juneau

Glacial ice in Tracy Arm Fjord

South Sawyer Glacier

Beautiful blue bergs

An infinity of shapes

Remote cabin..."This is the forest primeval...."

You never run out of wonder
