Such a beautiful wilderness still exists.

I think swans are the most elegant birds. These were lovely!


I would love to visit one day. Your pictures are amazing. Sorry you weren't able leave a comment on my blog. Last time Blogger was behaving that way, I had to switch to Google Chrome. Something about no longer supporting older browsers. I wonder if something like that is happening again.


Beautiful photos, Sallie. The swans are so graceful looking on the water. Were there many mosquitoes and black flies on your trip?


ally..my new blog is at myramblingwoods.com


Gorgeous scenery and the Trumpeters are stunning!


Good Morning Sallie. I can imagine all those photo stops at every turn in the road. I'm not sure I'd have ever got to the intended destination and would definitely have filled a few cards along the way (and on the way back).


Where can we send you batteries for your camera so we can continuously travel with you?

These are gorgeous photos.


Such beauty...really love your mosaics.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage

I agree. Alaska is a state for fabulous photos and I wish we had seen more of it when we were on a cruise. The swans create an atmosphere of peacefulness.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

A stunning landscape and beautiful Trumpeter Swans.

Just amazing. Thank you so much for visiting me, in my silly local adventures. Yours are amazing. Hubby want to go to England before he dies. It will take a bit of prep. Wel'll see how it goes!


Sallie, you can just keep posting Alaska and i'll be a happy bloggish camper.
I love all of these, but, most especially the trumpeter swans.

Anni @ I'd Rather B Birdin'

Stunning, extraordinary scenery!!! And of course, the swans...such a regal, majestic bird in our world. You showed them beautifully.

Thanks again for sharing your link at I'd Rather B Birdin'. It's always appreciated!!

Lavender Dreams

How true! There's so much to see and photograph! I visited in the '90s when we still had film to process. I would love to go back with a digital camera. LOVE your photos! Hugs, Diane


Those swans are beautiful...and even prettier with those backgrounds!


Beautiful shots of the swans!

Yes, photo-ops galore! I'd probably burn up my camera there. Love your photos, Sallie!


Pristine and peaceful. The mountains are much bigger than ours in VA.

Fabulous scenic views. I would love to see Trumpeters in the wild.


I loved these photos Sallie. I know if I ever get up to Alaska we will be stopping all the time. Those swans are wonderful and the scenery is gorgeous.


Hello Sallie, I am stopping back to say thank you for linking up your pretty swans and post to my critter party. Enjoy your weekend!


Beautiful and scenic place. Swans are having a great time.


The Trumpeter Swans in the Gilahena River are indeed such an elegant and beautiful pair♡♡♡ The greenery around the river is amazing, isn't it(^_^)v

Spectacular scenery and lovely Swans

Gorgeous river rivers. I so love the colours of the countryside. The greens are amazingly green for such a cold country.


Marvelous to see the swans there!!


Very scenic indeed - your photos are increasing my resolve to visit Alaska.


It is amazing scenery. so beautiful. I would probably take a bazillion images too.

Wonderful collection. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Karin M.

A very beautiful landscape,
and so noble swans ..
Best regards, Karin


I love the wildness! (And, no, that's not a misprint. I do mean wildness, not wilderness, although I like wilderness too.)


Those are some fantastic landscapes. I really want to do an Alaskan cruise on of these days.
Thank you for your compliment on my blog. Sometimes I think making photos b&w automatically ups the "artistic" factor. ;) In any case, I love your whimsical badgers, they definitely got a smile from me!


An elegant pair of swans are watching another elegant pair of voyagers.

They are watching each other.


Must be lovely to stretch the legs along a river. What a beautiful world!


I think I would drive like a snail with all these beautiful views !


There is always something to see with a camera, and you always find the best!


Sallie, beautiful skies and lovely scenic views.. The Trumpeter Swans are gorgeous.. Great post, thanks for sharing.. Have a happy weekend.. PS, I appreciate your visits and comments on my post..
