Alaska: the Pribilof Islands (St. Paul)
Click on the small picture to see a larger, more detailed version. I
toured Alaska, visiting Anchorage, St. Lawrence Island (Gambell),
Seward, St. Paul Island, Nome, and the Denali area. The trip was led
by Jan Hansen (dba Otus Asio Tours
He leads a variety of trips, all of which I would recommend. On this
trip, the co-leader was John O'Donnell who has led a number of trips
for the Sierra Club.
