The photographs were taken during a cruise to Alaska which Doug and I took to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary, July 1, 2000. We set sail from Vancouver late in the afternoon of June 29. The next day we sailed past the Queen Charlotte Islands enroute to our first port of call, Ketchikan, Alaska. Here we spent a wonderful day touring with Doug's cousins. The next morning we docked at Juneau. A five minute tram ride took us to a Tlingit Mountain Complex cultural centre 1800 feet up Mount Roberts. We spent the afternoon sailing through Stephen's Passage on a high-speed catamaran observing humpback whales, Steller seal lions, harbour seals, and bald eagles. The following day after anchoring off Sitka we spent the morning on Sitka Sound observing sea otters, gray whales, Steller seal lions and marine birds. In the afternoon we toured the Bald Eagle Raptor Centre where injured bald eagles and other raptors are rehabilitated and released, if possible. The following morning day we sailed into Yakatak Bay to view the Hubbard Glacier. At noon, we continued on our way to Valdez where we spent a very rainy morning. Fortunately the sun came out later in the afternoon as we sailed into College Fjord toward the Harvard and Yale Glaciers. Very early the following morning we disembarked at Seward and travelled by bus to Anchorage where we spent the day before our overnight flight back to Toronto. Shortly after takeoff, we were able to observe the large snow fields forming glaciers and a cruise ship sailing in College Fjord.
