There was a hiking trail along this creek, beautiful views and good exercise
These are Coho Salmon making their way upstream to spawn. The red coloring only happens when they're on their way upstream to spawn and die. They say where there are salmon, there are bears. We were very beary wary.
As I'm always saying, the pictures never do these views justice. These two cascades were coming down from the same glacier on the mountain above our campsite. The one on the left was probably 200 feet tall and 15 feet wide. The one on the right, even bigger. I hiked up here by myself one morning.
A rare selfie. If this had been in the lower 48, there'd be 300 cars parked here. I had it all absolutely to myself. The boulder above my head is as big as a UPS truck. Cascades like this are everywhere up here.
The Buckner Building was a self contained world for 2000 troops during the cold war overlooking the port in Whittier. It took 5 years to complete, and they only occupied it for 6. It withstood the '64 quake though, so obviously engineered well.
Lined up to drive into the mountain
A couple of the glaciers overlooking Portage Lake.
Finally, a wild moose that didn't run away at the first sight of my camera.
Williwaw Campground. Another glacier top center, the one that was feeding the cascades I hiked to.
