We were told it rains about 300 days of the year in areas of Alaska... That's almost 85% of the time. We beat the odds and scored 2 of 7 days without rain.

Of course, they don't mention this in travel brochures. Despite the weather, we managed to experience some really amazing scenery. If nothing else this trip wet our appetite for a more ambitious excursion to the backcountry in the years to come. Our route along the "Inside Passage" will certainly remain a special memory forever and I hope that my collection of thoughts and observations along the way might inspire some of you to experience it for yourself.

All photography in this ensemble was taken by yours truly using a very much appreciated birthday gift :) All photos are available in high resolution for printing upon request.
