Came up to Alaska about a week ago to do a little fishing and also to see the State
Fair. What a drastic change of climate from a hot and arid California to the wet and
cold Alaskan weather. Since I'm going to go fishing again early morning again - I will
keep my narrative short and let the photo journal do the talking instead.
Trip started with boarding a puddle-jumper at the Sacramento Airport.
The plane flew over the Sacramento River delta towards San Francisco.
The Sacramento River soon branched into various channels deep within the delta region
The salt ponds along the south San Franciso bay soon came into view. The red color is from
the brine shrimp which is harvested as food for aquarium fish.
Descending to land at SF International, we flew over the lagoons of Foster City
Then we boarded a larger jet for the 5-hour flight to Anchorage, Alaska
