How appropriate to photograph an American bald eagle on the Fourth of July in Alaska. In Hoonah, Alaska I was able to slowly approach this eagle which had apparently just eaten some fish. Yep, we made a return visit to Alaska to visit Denali National Park and cruise the beautiful coastline for a second time in two months.
It was quite a wonderful sight to finally see the mountains of Alaska from our cruise ship. First small mountains in the distance, the Aleutian Islands, then bigger mountain ranges on the Alaskan mainland. Back in the USA after about six months of travel to places too hot for any human. Great to see snow again.
