Some Photos: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjzLJHKk Some moments in Alaska are magical and you know you need to take a moment just to pause, look around and breathe it all in.  As Jake and I sat next to his first black bear way up a steep snowy avalanche shoot it was truly one of these moments.  We almost did not try for […]

It was nice to re-visit this […]

 Wednesday April 27 P 2792.9 S 2813.7 Photos: http://gallery.me.com/sundogjoe/100542   Yesterday we wrapped up the change of the impellers and again I was glad to have Jim taking me through it step by step. The impellers have not been changed since 2007 and both had a vein that was off and some of the pencil […]
