A Whale of a Time

When in Valdez a few weeks ago, my wife and I took a glacier and wildlife boat tour of Prince William Sound. We couldn't get very close to the Columbia glacier, but we did see a trove of wildlife. Including breaching humpbacks. I don't have time to crop them into figure-like insets, so here are a few glimpses. Seeing these whales kindof made me feel like I was saving for retirement...

The classic fin shot:
A good breach, if a little skewed on the horizon...

Those mountains in the background were 100 miles away.

The forecast doesn't look so swell for this weekend at Denali. I've heard that it's nice there no matter the weather.
