Fall is here in Haines and the Chilkat Valley. I wanted to get a photo of the Northern Lights reflecting on Mosquito Lake. Many years, this can be tricky as the fall can be fairly cloudy or the Northern Lights just don’t show up. Sometimes, the Northern Lights really shine bright but the lake is already frozen. This year, I was able to get this image the day before the lake froze. This is our view out the front door of our house and our Swan View rental cabins. We are blessed!
This summer I was very busy with Rainbow Glacier Adventures so I haven’t posted any images for awhile. Now that the summer season has slowed down a bit, I will be able to post some more images and share some stories from life up here in Haines. Stay tuned…….
Jan and Bob Zimmerman were on a private photo tour in mid-August with RGA owner Joe Ordonez. Bob had the expensive camera. Jan had a simpler model. She captured these bears fishing along the Chilkoot River with a little patience and a simple click of the camera.
In early July National Geographic came down to the Lynn Canal with Yukon Vet Michelle Oakley and enlisted Rainbow Glacier Adventures’ guides Robert Chadwell and Bri Agenbroad to lead a kayak tour out to the Steller sea lion haul out across from Mud Bay. It was a perfect blue day to approach the strange cacophonous society of bellowing creatures.
