No Internet or Cell Phone - Yikes!!

We thought we would be flying to Katmai today, but the weather is too bad and so we probably will not get off this island until tomorrow.  Oh life in Alaska.....   I also just learned there is no internet or cell phone connection except in dire emergency when we are on the boat in Katmai.  So....  depending on how things go today, this may be the last post until September 9.  Kodiak is a beautiful island filled with one gorgeous landscape followed by another.  Bison roaming the hills.  Salmon in the streams, bear somewhere.....  Here are a few pics from yesterday's road trip around the Island.

Bison parents and baby grazing in the hills

Another salmon jumping

Fisherman in a stream LOADED with salmon.  They were pulling them out one after another.

Two new friends - both a bit skeptical


  1. Hi Kitty, It was fun photographing with you today, as soon as we get to Katmai the real fun should begin-I can't wait!!

  2. My husband and I lived in Anchorage, Alaska for two years and we loved it. It is a beautiful place!

  3. Wow! I had no idea there were Bison in Alaska...This is so exciting...anticipating what will come next. Wishing Nd hoping for clear sailing so you can get to those bears...
