Alaska panhandle

Rich and I snorkeled the 50ish waters of Ketchikan. Lots of sea stars, colorful and huge, didn't see the king salmon. I loved swimming in the kelp forest.
I went for a solo mountain bike ride in Sitka.
It was challenging and exhilarating. I walked a lot of it, forded a stream, meditated at a high lake. I ate salmon berries by the side of the road. I didn't see a bear.
We went as far as the Hubbard Glacier. Really puts understanding of change into perspective.
Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau. Kayaked and saw a sea lion, eagle, harbor seals.
