We had arrived on an Alaska Air flight from Washington DC Reagan Airport, thru Seattle, thru Juneau and then on to Gustavus around 5:00pm the night of July 3rd. It was a long day of flying!
We spent the 4th of July photographing Bald Eagles along the Icy Passage Gustavus Dock area and watching the great Gustavus July 4th parade. For a small town, they turn out three fire trucks and a small group of floats and other vehicles. It was great to see Gustavus celebrate our nations Birthday!
We spent two nights at the Gustavus Inn and rented a car for the 4th of July to give us mobility with our camera equipment.
