130 Days! Going North 44 Stops! Going South Only 8 stops in the same place! This makes for a mini-book or an eight part, 160 page narration with almost 200 color photographs. Oh, and a few video clips.
1--SEATTLE to SHEARWATER: This is the start of our trip. It covers Alert Bay, Cape Caution, Eucott Bay (personal favorite), and Shearwater among others. The more common areas closer to Seattle aren't discussed.
2--SHEARWATER to KETCHIKAN: Heading North as fast as we can go! See some of the sights along the way, including Grenville Channel, Prince Rupert, and our first Bear Sighting.
3--KETCHIKAN to PETERSBURG: Some of the worlds most pristine forests are in the Tongass National Forests of Alaska. Check out Punchbowl Cove, Punchbowl Lake, Bears, Zimovia Strait, and Wrangle Narrows!
4--PETERSBURG to JUNEAU: Icebergs in Tracy Arm, whales, and other incredible sights are found in Part 4, but don't believe me, go see them for yourself.
5--CHATHAM STRAIT to PRINCE RUPERT: Heading back south we visit the impressive Baranof Island and some of the fantastic anchorages along the way. Our personal favorite was Red Bluff Bay!
6--PRINCE RUPERT to SHEARWATER (via outer passage): On this leg we take a route that is less used, but full of wildlife like wolves, porpoise, and even a mountain lion! We also visit Roscoe Inlet a fantastic fjord that rivals Tracy Arm.
7--SHEARWATER to TELEGRAPH COVE: Back around Cape Caution finds us among sea otters and orcas! Check out some of the sights from Pruth Bay, Goose Bay, Turnbull Cove, and Telegraph Harbor.
8--TELEGRAPH COVE to NANAIMO: Orcas! The amazing critters in Johnstone Strait. Also read about foolishly hitting the rapids at 11 and 12 knots!
