Petersburg, alaska

The thing about shooting photographs in Alaska is everytime I put my lens cap back on my camera, stuff it back in my bag and figure I'm done shooting photos for the day, some spectacular opportunity presents itself almost immediately.

Inisde the harbor at Petersburg are all of these marvelous boats, and this one is a purse seiner.

We stopped at the Sons of Norway hall to watch middleschoolers dance to a polka in native costume. It's OK to call these costumes but you cannot call the regalia worn by Alaska natives a costume.

We were not planning to walk over the hill after strolling through downtown Petersburg, but I was thrilled that we did because the view was magnificent.

You'll find lots of flowers and Norwegian touches throughout this seaside town of Petersburg. I asked these people why they were drilling a hole into the street. Turns out nobody measured the depth of the cement when it was poured, so they had to drill through the concrete to make sure it was the proper depth. On a Sunday afternoon, no less!

Elizabeth, these are great pictures, and those mountains are so majestic!  I have no idea where in Alaska that Petersburg is located but it sure is beautiful!

Those pictures are amazing.  I can't even imaging how awesome Alaska would be to visit!  Maybe one of these days...

I am loving this pictures you are posting, Elizabeth.  That front porch (despite the jack hammering going on in front) looks like a perfect place to take a load off and breath some truly fresh air.
