Washington DC and environs - I've spent a lot of time working in Washington, D.C. from 1986-2014. Most of these images are from the early 2000s, although some are from the final visit during which I took pictures in April 2014. (I think I was back in 2015-16 but didn't have the time or desire to explore.) In addition to getting shots of the usual monuments, during my extended stays I also visited wildlife refuges and museums in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia.

Southeast Alaska, July 2003 - After flying into Petersburg on the 17th and chasing eagles around for a few days, I moved on to Wrangell. After day trips to LeConte Glacier, Anan Wildlife Observatory and the Stikine River, I headed to Ketchikan and a tour of Misty Fjords National Monument. The highlight of the trip was Anan and its bears, but there was plenty to see along the way.
