A Crane Cruise on Alaska’s Resurrection Bay

I wasn’t looking for a reason to post photos from our trek through Alaska, so much as an excuse. A crane on a barge provided it.

The tour through Resurrection Bay from Seward, Alaska is supposed to include the glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park. Sadly, even glaciers aren’t powerful enough to shine through rainy, foggy days. But there are still sights to be seen. Eagles, otters, harbor seals, and puffins, wildlife not generally part of the scenery on the Chicago River.

And the above barge. I know, most folks would be scanning the mountains for birds and bears, or watching the water for porpoises and orcas (we saw neither), but if you’re even a bit surprised I chose to watch the crane on a barge, you haven’t been paying attention to this space.
