August 10, 2012: Day 1 of the 3-Day Golden North Salmon Derby in Juneau, Alaska...

August 10, 2012: 

Day 1 fishing the 3-Day Golden North Salmon Derby
with my father in law from his boat in Juneau, Alaska ~ 
(No fish today, although we had great fun)...

Nearing the fishing grounds
so slowing down to get ready to switch from the big motor
to the kicker, and then bait the hooks to start fishing...
Chilkat Mountain Range...

A unique formation of
towering clouds...

Boats full of whale watchers
were everywhere...

A Gull
taking flight...

Pigeon Guillemots
(seabirds related to the puffins)
that breed on the coasts and islands in southern Alaska
were in abundance all day...






My 87-year-young father in law Ralph was pondering
where all those elusive King Salmon
and Coho were hiding out...


A Bald Eagle
perched on Eagle Reef...









Eagle Glacier...






My father in law says this is a one-of-a-kind
glacial granite boulder on Aaron Island...
 


Couldn't resist capturing a shot
of this stately Ford Dump Truck parked
in the uplands of Tee Harbor
before heading home for the day...
