|This is looking back at Del Viento|
over the dinghy transom. Cool, eh?
I took this in the anchorage inside
Reanne's Terror on the west coast
of Baranof Island, Alaska.
Lately, I’m reminded of this daily.
On the Inside Passage running up the North Pacific coast of British Columbia and Southeast Alaska, anchorages everywhere provide almost complete protection. Mornings and evenings are often still, without a hint of a breeze. The result is that our day-lit landscapes are echoed in mirror-like water. It’s not the cosmos, but it’s still otherworldly.
P.S.-- I want to add one more thing to last week's post about That Place. Our new friend and resident of That Place, Brooke Elgie, is a former Good Old Boat writer who now writes a column about That Place for Juneau's Capital City Weekly newspaper. Here is a link to this week's article which concerns the school I talked about in my post. It gives a good general sense of the Place as well.
|Okay, this isn't what it appears, I|
rotated the photo upside-down, to
show how dramatic it is.
|And this is upside-down too, a fishing boat|
in Hoonah, Alaska.
|Isn't this trippy? I turned this one upside-down too.|
(I promise this is the last of this upside-down thing.)
I took this on a lake we came across hiking near
the Glacier Bay National Park Lodge.
