Eldred Rock Lighthouse

Eldred Rock Lighthouse

The Eldred Rock Lighthouse is located in Southeast Alaska between Juneau and Haines on Lynn Canal. It is an automated light, so I guess it isn’t really a ‘house’. I took this from the Alaska Marine Highway ferry on a trip to Haines to visit my Aunt. It was May and this was the amount of snow left on the mountains. I did not come back this way, but drove back down the Alaska Highway … a wonderful trip, if you have the time and are interested in being impressed with just how big the country is up there and how far apart towns are.

Below is a photo of Haines as we were sailing past to get to the ferry terminal north of town. When I lived there one winter in the mid-’70’s, I lived just at the foot of the hill on the right edge of the photo. It had a spectacular view of the water and mountains.

Saying Goodbye to 2021

Beach at Kalaloch

The sun is setting on 2021 … and can’t say I’m all that unhappy about saying goodbye. Political craziness, pandemic restrictions, loss of loved ones, and the list goes on. Not that there weren’t good times… but here’s hoping that 2022 raises the bar a little bit on the ratio of good/bad.

For all those who follow my blog (and especially those who ‘like’ or make comments), I am grateful for your encouragement and support. Thank you!

This is a shot I took while taking the Alaska Marine Highway ferry up to Haines, Alaska. I know it is along the coast of Vancouver Island, but that’s it. I really wish I had taken note of the location at the time. Sigh.

It was a nice spot, though.

Sunset at Kalaloch

Kalaloch is one of the beach sections of Olympic National Park. It’s a great place for catching sunsets (but a long ways from anywhere else). These shore pines are in front of the row of beach cottages that are available for rent. The (small, cozy with a great view) restaurant has good food, but expect the higher prices that come with a National Park resort in a remote location.

This was taken a while back when I was returning from seeing my aunt up in Haines, Alaska: from the ferry getting close to Juneau.

That’s a great ferry ride: too bad I have a negative reaction about long boat rides right now or we might plan another trip.
