Alaska Adventure Addendum, May 2004
Bill and Jan Helf had the opportunity to take a trip to Alaska in May of 2004. We traveled by plane, ferry, auto and train. This adventure turned out to be the trip of our lifetime. The photos that follow are a poor representation of the spectacular beauty and diversity that is in great abundance in Alaska. Almost everywhere one looks it is awe inspiring – that is, of course, if one has any understanding and appreciation of the great outdoors. Alaska has to be the greatest ‘outdoors’ of all the fifty states in terms of size, majesty, mountains, forests, shoreline, water, pristine beauty, diversity of wildlife and plant life to mention just a few of its attributes. We can’t wait to return.
A Word of Caution: All of the following photos of Alaska were taken by Bill or Jan Helf, amateur photographers in every respect. Neither of us has had any training in how to “take photographs.” Therefore, we expect to be criticized for poor staging, lighting, focus, subject matter, balance, lack of participation in Discussion Groups, etc., etc. And, that is O.K. May we suggest that you set aside all of your concern for professionalism and just share the joy of “Our Trip of a Lifetime.”
