Alaska 2003

My Summer 2003 road trip saw me taking a family trip to Alaska. We spent a couple of days in Juneau, a couple more in Ketchikan. We fished a total fo three days.

The first day we caught a charter flight out to a secluded area to do some fly fishing. Day 2 we did a deep sea charter and hauled in some nice king salmon. Day three was another puddle jumper flight out to a beautiful area.

I promise more narrative is to come, but for now, I hope you like the pictures!
