Nearly $339,000 of the savings will be seen in the current fiscal year that began July 1.

Adventures of a wildlife photographer "Hidden Alaska"-Part 8

July 24, 2012

When I last wrote I was out to sea, at the end of Resurrection Bay, south of Seward, Alaska. We had a wildlife filled, beautiful scenic boat ride from Fox Island southward towards the Kenai Fjords. Seeing Killer Whales, Sea Lions, Harbor Seals and a vast variety of birdlife was, to this photographer, incredible. It was becoming quite clear to me that this was really the photographic adventure of a lifetime. Not only was I seeing a vast amount of wildlife and scenery, but we were definitely off the beaten path, so to speak.
