On a visit to the Pybus Bay cabin on Admiralty Island, a friend and I were astonished by the number of silver, pink and chum salmon in the creek near our cabin. The salmon would enter the stream on the incoming tide, not in twos or threes, but in waves of fifty. We spent three days fishing the stream and didn't see another angler. In the evenings, we would explore the intertidal areas to photograph deer, eagles and brown bears. Under the thick canopy of the spruce, wild berries were everywhere. The berries made tasty additions to salads, pancakes and oatmeal. In the tidal pools, we found an abundance of marine life that included starfish, barnacles, jellyfish and crabs. We photographed herons, otters, eagles and blacktail deer. We found paradise and kept wishing we could stay for an entire month.
