1: BEFORE OUR TOUR STARTED WE DECIDED TO TAKE A 22-MILE BICYLE TOUR OF THE ALASKAN COASTLINE | They made David roll up his pant legs so they wouldn't get caught in the chain | Neither one of us had been on a bicycle in years, but I guess they are correct...you never forget how to ride
2: Our first hike in Alaska Harding Icefield Trail | This is where the glacier was in 1961 | The sign represents where the glacier was in 1998 | Note: If you see a bear, you should talk nice to it and if it starts to eat you, fight back
3: The infamous log! Made it across with a little help from my new friends - Matt & Joan! | This is where the glacier was in 1951 | No bear sightings on this hike
4: KAYAKING | Unfortunately, there are no pictures of the whale and calf swimming in the bay while we were kayaking, but it was AWESOME | Resurrection Bay Seward
5: Harbor Seals | Getting ready to begin our adventure | The Kayaking Gang
6: Alaska SeaLife Rescue Center Seward | Alaska SeaLife Center Seward, AK
7: This is a baby beluga whale that was seperated from its mother at 2 days old. It had just arrived at the center during our tour.
8: Moose Tracks | Carter Lake
10: It takes a Bald Eagle 5 years to develop the familiar white head. | Immature Bald Eagle | Mature Bald Eagle | When looking for Bald Eagles look for the golf balls in the tree tops - but make sure it isn't an Albino Eagle (better known as a Seagull) | "Albino" Bald Eagle - better known as a Seagull

14: Yes, there are moose in Alaska! | Finally...on the last day of our trip
15: People on snowshoes placed orange tape on the trees during the winter to record levels of snow | Carl Wynn Nature Preserve Homer | Our new friends - Jon and Matt | Don't be fooled by the Chocolate Lillies...they don't smell like chocolate! | This is where we were standing when we first spotted the moose!
