Summer in Southeast Alaska
Alaska is a place like no other in the United States. I was lucky enough to live in Auke Bay near Juneau for three months during the summer of 2011. While hiking and traveling, what struck me most was the abundance of untouched, undisturbed land. Some people today argue that there is no such thing as wilderness anymore, that humans have expanded so greatly that no bit of land is unaffected by mankind, and that wilderness is nothing more than a romantic concept. After visiting Southeast Alaska, I no longer put faith in that belief. Wilderness does exist, although in few places, and Alaska is one of them.
Please enjoy this short documentary I filmed of the beautiful and powerful life in Southeast Alaska.

RV'ing Alaska's Inside Passage
The adventure begins on beautiful Vancouver Island in British Columbia with a visit to Telegraph Cove, possibly the best place on Earth to view Orca (killer whales). We continue north to Ketchikan, Alaska's first city on the Inside Passage. Here we explore the spectacular Misty Fjords National Monument by kayak and float plane. We also learn about the art of totem pole carving and watch as they are created. A short side trip by ferry takes us to Prince Of Wales Island, which has more than 2,000 miles of logging roads for exploration. The island is also known for its luxury fishing lodges.
Wrangell calls itself Alaska's Hidden Jewel and is paradise for those seeking outdoor adventure! Many say that if you're looking for the real Alaska, you'll find it here. The Anan Bear Observatory is considered to be one of the best in the state and the only place where black and brown bears feed together. We take an exciting jet boat tour up the Stikine River - the last great un-dammed river on the continent - and visit Telegraph Creek as well as the Grand Canyon of the Stikine.
The ferry becomes part of the adventure as we head north through the Wrangell Narrows - the single most difficult navigational stretch on the Passage. Petersburg is Alaska's Little Norway and Southeast's busiest processing port, home to the area's largest fishing fleet. Sitka was once the Russian capital of Alaska and is one of the most beautiful spots on our route. We explore the town's history and native culture. The Alaska Raptor Center offers a close-up at eagles. A wildlife cruise to St. Lazaria Island lets us observe whales, puffins, sea lions and otters. A snorkeling tour reveals Alaska's underwater world.
Juneau is the state capital. The biggest attraction is Mendenhall Glacier, which we explore with an exciting helicopter tour and glacier trek. Some of the best humpback whale watching is within a short boat ride of town. Incredible glacier calving and towering cliffs can be seen at nearby Tracy Arm. Side trips take us to beautiful Glacier Bay and the quirky little town of Pelican.
Our adventure ends with a tour of historic Skagway and more wilderness adventures in Haines, including a river tour, an air boat ride and panning for gold.

Elfin Cove, Alaska
Isa took a float plane from Juneau over to Elfin Cove, Alaska to hang out with her dad for a day. She decided to give us a tour of the small Alaskan fishing town.

The absolute farthest town south in Alaska | Driving around Metlakatla!
Please share & subscribe! YOU MAY NEVER PASS THIS WAY AGAIN....
You CANNOT go any further south in Alaska than Metlakatla it is the end of the road, and essentially, the END of Alaska!
It is surely beautiful and just a hop skip and a jump from Ketchikan. About a 30 minute boat ride to be exact. The folks on Metlakatla say that it does not rain as much there as it does on Ketchikan... how bizarre since they are within visual distance from each other!
Hope you enjoy this time lapse video shot on Metlakatla. Feel free to pause it at any time to get a great view of whatever!
