Post Sport Fishing in Seward

Well, the bottom line is that it has become infinitely easier for me to post images (and that in and of itself proposes a series of challenges (from camera battery charging to downloading to enhancing raw image files) on the road - with unpredictable electrical power and internet access.

              I'm not whining, just making an observation.

                                                                                      I've got about eight entries (mostly writing) "in-progress"; however, finding the time to finish them has been somewhat of a challenge. For example, it is now 11;15, I'm sitting in a RV park Wi-Fi dedicated room, waiting for the load of laundry to dry, and trying to focus on finishing the writing.

                                                                                                                   We went on a sport fishing cruise today, bucking the advent of (predicted) gale force winds tonight, 50 miles outside Seward. A  tale to be told in its entirety, later. This is the only photo, going out, before my camera battery died.




However, we returned to our camp site (in the rain) thoroughly exhausted (having secured a little less than thirty pounds of halibut fillets) and, after resting/recovering for a couple of hours had dinner.
                             This is Marshall's homage to "Mark in Alaska - Eating out of a Chili Can."

A New Direction

Marshall and I went to Alaska together in 2010. The vehicle that we traveled in (Marshall's Sprinter) was so enjoyable that I bought one in late summer 2011, and have begun to make frequent trips around the west. Right now, Marshall and Bonnie are in Marfa, Texas (on Facebook, check out "A Month in Marfa.") Next month, we're going to begin and post a website of postcards between artists, dating back to the early 1970s. I'm probably going to launch a new blog in the next couple of months.....travels around the west, and my work on the archives of photographers L.H. ("Ben") Benschneider, and Robert C. Bishop. Stay tuned.

FIVE Views of The High One

"Denali" means "The High One" in Athabascan (the tribe native to the region), and it is most appropriate for the highest peak in North America.                                                                                 Well, we woke up Thursday (September 2) to incredibly clear skies, and decided to drive into the Park.                                                                                                We had resigned ourselves to the fact that we were probably part of the "70%" club; that is, the percentage of visitors to the Park that do not see Denali.                                             However , eight miles down the road we were rewarded with a vision of it! We could see it all day, up to 100 miles away..... Outside Talkeetna

Relocation!

Trinidad Lake State Park Time for a change of scenery, from Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, to beautiful Trinidad, Colorado. I've not lived year-round in Colorado since September 1977, when I left Colorado Springs for Los Angeles. I've been following the Colorado Creative Industries for about two years, and have been extremely impressed by the State's Creative Districts - most specifically the Corazon de Trinidad . So, while I decided last year to relocate, the whole process was sped up by the events which have buffeted lives world-wide in the past four months.  Trinidad is in the southeast corner of the state, about equidistant from Denver and Albuquerque. It has a rich history, a magnificent downtown Historic District, and is home to the newest (42nd) Colorado State Park - Fisher's Peak. Amtrak runs the Southwest Chief from Union Station in LA to Chicago, and Trinidad has long been a stop along the route. It is also located along the I-25 corridor, and abut
