About Me

My photo
Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Pic of the Day: The Inside Passage

Just south of Alaska's capital city, Juneau: a look down the Inside Passage from the Mount Roberts gondola tram, an 1800' ascent up the side of the mountain for a panoramic view of this pristine part of the world. 

This part of the passage, and indeed a good portion of the mountains in the area, were carved by huge glaciers over the course of thousands of years. The remaining glaciers are in retreat, but still magnificent in their own right.

(That's a full-sized cruise ship in the upper right quadrant of this phot -- that gives you an idea of the vast scale of Alaska.)
