I'm leaving on Wednesday for 10 days and I probably won't be able to update or check email. I'll be back with lots of pictures.
"...in these coast landscapes there is such indefinite, on-leading expansiveness, such a multitude of features without apparent redundance, their lines graduating delicately into one another in endless succession, while the whole is so fine, so tender, so ethereal, that all penwork seems hopelessly unavailing. Tracing shining ways through fiord and sound, past forests and waterfalls, islands and mountains and far azure headlands, it seems as if surely we must at length reach the very paradise of the poets, the abode of the blessed."I'm thinking my trip will be like this.- John Muir, Travels in Alaska
