Inverted

I turned right side up three of the videos that were posted upside-down during my trip. Sorry about that. Technical problems. Anyway, they are now posted correctly at Juneau, Kalaloch, and Hood River. They are posted below, too. Hit PLAY and they should be just fine. Also, you can expand them to full-screen. The videos were taken at a high resolution. They look pretty good, actually. It’s amazing what an iPhone 5 camera can do.

Good memories. And doesn’t a sunny day make a huge difference in picture taking?

Balcony Pano (AK)

I had to take one more panoramic shot of Ketchikan from my balcony on the Island Princess. The sun is lighting up the town like a warm candle. It’s so pretty. I’m sitting here looking over town from high up on my perch.

Loot (AK)

Finally did my trip shopping. It’s fun to buy stuff! Last chance today in Alaska. We leave for Vancouver and a new time zone this afternoon at 5pm.

I can’t fully fathom what I’ve seen in Alaska. It’s simply too big. But my soul feels calmer and mind seems clearer. In such sweeping magnificence and brilliant beauty, it’s hard to not experience some inner peace.

It is bigger than me.

Local Citizenry (AK)

Dealing with tourists off of the cruise ships can be way too hard on a person in Ketchikan!

Yankee Clipper (AK)

I love these ships. I think I’d like to try to go to sea on one. Once I got my sea-legs, I think it would be pretty cool. In Ketchikan.

Long Days (AK)

We’ll be to Ketchikan in a few hours. This is what it looks like at about 4am in the morning. It’s dark from about 10pm until just before 4am. And the days will get longer until the end of Jun. This is why some plants grow so strong and big up here – lots of sunshine for photosynthesis.

Peace (AK)

Our driver said he moved to Alaska because of the solace and peace. I can understand, just a little bit, what he means.

So Beautiful (AK)

For some reason, this place is special to me. Panorama is salmon bake location. The smells, sounds, sights, emotions. It’s hard…
