Cannery at Letnikof Cove

Haines, Alaska

We had the most incredible day yesterday. After adventuring in search of trumpeter swans we took a road up to a working gold mine and then another to a beautiful lake. In the afternoon a very generous couple took us out on their boat to raise Dungeness crab traps and gave us three of them for dinner. We cooked the crabs and ate them surrounded by the beautiful snow-capped mountains. After we rode to see if we could find the grizzlies that are supposed to arrive soon to share in the salmon run. No grizzlies, but orcas instead. We followed the orcas for a bit along the road bordering the Lynn canal.

This is so amazing. It seems like it can't be real. The wonderful people that we've met and their stories about how they ended up in Alaska are as much a joy as the scenery.

I had a friend in college who took a bus from Knoxville to work here one summer. He lived in a tent all summer.

You are an artist. I have seen dozens of shots of this old cannery at Letnikof Cove, but you have captured its beauty from a different angle. This is an outstanding image. v.
