Indian River, Sitka Alaska

Posted by on Aug 23, 2016 in Articles | 3 Comments


This is Indian River in Sitka, Alaska. There are huge old-growth Sitka spruces off to the right of this scene (see previous posts) and pink and dog salmon in the river. Just past the huge spruces there is an active bear trail where Grizzlies walk to avoid the people on the the trail on the other side of the river. If you stopped to listen you would here Pacific wrens chittering in the ferns and kinglets sighing in the boughs above. Pay attention to the gravel bank because there’s been a water ouzel feeding there. All of this accompanied by the liquid lullaby of the passing water. In case you are wondering, this is paradise.

If you want to know where I’ll be in early August next year, look for me right here. I’ll be the one smiling.

      Hi Walt!
      I haven’t the faintest idea! All the sign-ups are through the Santa Fe Workshops and will be posted on their website. I expect you’ll be able to sign up early in the coming year. You would love it!!!
