Trip to Alaska and fishing.

So, we came up to Alaska for the summer and pretty much all we do is work and fish! Its a lot of fun. We're working at a Best Western and the best part is that we work the same shift, so we pretty much spend all day, everyday together. Pretty nice for a couple of newlyweds. But here are some pictures from our road trip up here and all our fishing adventures.

Mac's first sockeye. Sockeye #2, he's somewhat of a fish slayer!

My first sockeye. As you can see I couldn't wait to eat him.

Looking down the river where we fish.

The fishing hole.

Another look at the river from the bridge.

This is what we look like after waking up at 3:30 or 4 in the morning or even staying up all night, hiking for an hour each way, fishing all day until 11:30 or so and then coming home to go to work! It makes for a long day but its lots of fun and so worth it.

Looking into the depths of the forest.

No real reason for this picture, I just thought it would be cool.



We watched this little family of ducks all day and we actually saw a bald eagle try and swoop down to grab one a couple times. It was pretty neat to watch.

Nice backward 'C' on the little 5 weight rod.

Mac, pullin for all he's worth. Apparently so was the fish.

I had to let this one go because I snagged him. But I had to get a picture because I didn't know if I would get another one that day. And it was a good thing because we wouldn't have kept this one anyways, he was starting to turn colors and their meat goes soft and they're no good.

A kiss goodbye.

We both ended up keeping 2 fish that day and mine was bigger!!!

Fish lovers, us and them.

Lake Louise, Canada. One of our many stops on the way to Alaska.

On the road to Alaska.

All packed and ready for our long drive.

Random pictures at a restaurant in Canada.

Caribou!! We were a little too excited and scared them. But it was cool, we'd never seen caribou before.

Gotta love sleeping pictures!!

Oh, so attractive!

Right before we saw the moose, we had been talking about how we wanted to see one

On the ferry from Skagway to Juneau. T

The water was so calm, it was amazing.

This is one of my favorites, you can see the moon in the left corner, just barely.
