The day began with an up-close view of a mother humpback and her calf. They quietly surfaced together several times as they slowly moved down Chatham Strait. Bald eagles peppered the trees and the call of a common loon enhanced the typical Southeast Alaskan atmosphere.
In Sitkoh Bay, groups of hikers set out down an old logging road among the red alder, Sitka spruce, and western hemlocks. A few kayakers and those who enjoyed the longer hikes got a view of a mother bear and her three cubs. The more casual hikers were rewarded with a close observation of a Sitka black-tailed deer in addition to a multitude of banana slugs.
