Here are just a few shots of the glaciers along the Inside Passage, a totem from Sitka National Historical Park, a bald eagle, and some salmon heading up stream to do what salmon do best. I have only been in Stika since yesterday afternoon, but I like it quite a bit. I think I will try to rent a bicycle tomorrow so I can cover more ground. Sitka is MUCH bigger than Haines.

Museum of Anthropology and Stanley Park

Yesterday I took off on foot to the Museum of Anthropology. I knew I would get there early, so I walked down to Wrecker Beach via Trail 3. What a beautiful place! It was early enough that no one was yet taking advantage of the beach of the clothing optional ordinance, and I had the place to myself. I walked along heading west, and just taking in the beautiful morning. I climbed back up the hill via Trail 4 to the Museum of Anthropology.

You can check out a few select images from my day yesterday here on my flickr account.

Here's a couple to tide you over.

Trip to the Pacific Northwest and Alaska

Hello! I departed Boston yesterday for Vancouver, BC, where I will spend today at the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology. I got into Vancouver yesterday afternoon, and was able to walk around a bit. Today after my museum visit I plan on going to Stanley Park. Here is a shot of this beautiful city, and folks enjoying the day, and a couple of bridges across the False Creek.

Dutch Public Artist/Designer

Here is a great example of the generosity of spirit that can be found with practitioners of "Physical Graffiti", a subset of the relational aesthetics genre.
