My first sun dog sighting and only sun dog capture!! I did see it later on both sides… but there was nooo way to get it all in one shot… and we were in the skiff, bouncing across the waves home!
There were sun dog displays on both of the trips we made to Howard Cove recently, leading me to believe that magic abounds over there across Chatham Strait!
Kuiu Island is very different from Baranof Island… it is ancient land, unlike Baranof which is relatively new. There are wolf, moose, and the largest concentration of black bears in the world! No grizzly bears…
You can see Baranof Island in the far distance over there on the right… yes… we made the trip across the strait, which is open to the Pacific, in that skiff!
