We are home after driving 7475 miles plus another ~370 miles floating on ferries.  



 
Our furtherest distance from home was at Salmon Glacier which is ~30 miles North of Hyder AK.


 
Looking North from the toe.


 
I wish that I had taken a video, but....


 
Another view.  That is a lotta ice.  :o

Thanks Guys, I still have pictures/videos to post but right now it's unloading the camper, washing, stowing, and then reloading all of the sawmilling gear. 

Yes, I head out to saw for my 230 mile road trip customer Tuesday sawing dirty logs into beams.  Then ERC, 60 miles away and Red Oak, 50 miles away.

I am trying to upload waterfalls and fish pictures to YouTube now.  For some reason there is no audio on the fish pictures?  The waterfalls did fine.

Not too much on the ferry trip because it was overcast.  The pictures are all on the other camera and I haven't looked at them yet.  Hopefully there will be some.  We saw 8 Whales but I didn't get any "tail flipping" pictures.

Interesting.  I'm kind of surprised that there weren't bears in there eating the salmon.

The salmon run was a bit late and had only begun that week.  One grizzly was coming each day but we missed seeing her by about a half hour the day we arrived and she came about 1 hours after we left on the second day.  She had not come when we left at 6:30 on the third day, but probably did after we left.  As the numbers of salmon increased, the bear activity should increased.  The Pink Salmon just started to arrive while we were there but had not started their spawning activity.

I only saw two spawned out and dead salmon.

On the Port Alberni highway there is a fence alongside a rocky creek that has become a favorite place for "Love Locks".  Pad locks and everything imaginable are attached to the fence so Pat & I added ours:   smiley_love



 
Here is our lock with the fence in the background.


 
A closeup of the brass tag on the lock.


 
Had to search to find an empty spot.


 
It's attached.


 
Can you see it?


 
How about now?  It should be easy to spot.  :)
