Skagway’s First Snowfall

It almost looks like the Chilkoot Trail, but it's not! These are girls on my tour.

Skagway got their first snowfall on November 5th. It’s time to play!

About the Light

In photography, it’s all about the light, and what it’s doing. How does it play a role in your photos? Request our guides, Tom or Jay, if you are interested in learning more about light and photography. Jay took this photo overlooking Tushi Lake, where we take our 7 hour tours.

My New Spray Skirt

Becky Molly and glacier iceMolly and I picked up a bitty berg to add to our Glacieritas… see my spray skirt? We almost flipped the kayak doing so, but oh, everyone at the lodge enjoyed their drinks that evening!

 

We went with AWA on one of their week long tours, on the Kenai Penninsula. Beyond Skagway is also offering overnight tours. I went with Alaska Wildland Adventures, to see how it’s done. What fun!

New Van!

We are proud to announce our new 2015 Ford Transit Van! We are hoping to have a few more of them by 2016, depending on how well this season goes.
