you were following in our footsteps, a week or so after the fact! ;)

You can tell your birding bro that we met a birding celeb along that very road: David Sibley and his wife! We all had stopped for a perched red-tail, which is actually a rare bird up there.

Mary’s local nature photog friend was escorting the Sibleys around (as Mary was doing with us), and he called her over to introduce her and us to them. Serendipitous encounter, in the middle of nowhere. We also crossed the sound with the Sibleys a few days later on that wonderful ferry. Nice to bird with the best! No orcas tho, which is why we were riding it. Planes are way quicker, with no horrible downtime in shittier Whittier, a must-miss Alaska “destination.”

Mushrooms up the wazoo, cool as hell plants and ground cover, megafauna and glaciers, and human wildlife celebrities, too! Whatta trip! The stars aligned for us.
