We had good weather this year. Good in coastal Alaska means it only rained half of the days we were there. It is a rain forest after all, and to stay so lush and green it receives almost 200 inches of precipitation annually. Two hundred, yes I'm serious. Rain jackets and boots are a must and some summers if you wait for the sun to get outside adventuring…. you'll never get out there. If it's misting we call it a good day for walking the beach. If it's raining we drive a few miles out of town in hopes that it will only be sprinkling and go for a hike. You have to.
And as much as I love the sun, I must admit to swooning over the deep foggy photographs I bring home after every visit. No need to try and stand in the shade to get the exposure right… everything is awash in beautiful soft light almost all of the time.
Our favorite rocky coastline…..
