Trip South on the Alaska Ferry
The trip south was really fun. The weather was glum the first half but turned quite nice after we arrived in Petersburg. We encountered 25 foot seas on the cross gulf portion from Yakutat to Juneau but luckily it was at night so it was a matter of loading up on dramaine and going to sleep. Here are a few pics of the trip.
We saw several groups of humpback whales but they were all too far away for decent shots. The orca were another story. We also saw several porpoise and tons of sea birds.
