I had two major concerns before moving to Glacier Bay this summer:
- Will living in a rain forest make me go crazy and cause me to commit some sort of “rain rage” crime?
- Will there be enough places to take photos?
The jury is still out on number 1.
With only about 10 miles of paved road on the secluded “island” that I now call home, and only a smattering of trails, there aren’t many places to explore. Gustavus, the nearest town, has 400 people but you’d never know it by passing through.
This is downtown Gustavus:
That is all there is. It is really freaking small!
Note: that is not a real bear
Luckily, I have yet to be bored with photos. As you can see in the photo gallery below, there is a wide variety of things to photograph. From towering glaciers to Hitchcockian swarms of seagulls to defunct boats, this is a diverse and photogenic place.
