R1 Alaska Tips Welcomed
  • Between 5/21 and 6/2/06 I'll be taking a Princess Alaskan cruise through the inside passage (south-to-north) stopping at Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and various fjords; then I'll be boarding a train in Whittier that will take us into Denali Nat'l Park.

  • I will be taking my R1, CPL filter, but no tele or other equipment (back surgery has forced me "lighten up" and trade in my trusty Canon 20D and 4-5 lenses, filters, flash, etc., for the R1 - so far, I've been really impressed by the quality of the camera's performance).

  • Any tips would be greatly appreciated (things to photograph, exposure compensation for snow and ice, etc.). Also, tips on clothing, temperature, etc. are welcome. This will be my first trip to the region.

  • Further - where's the best place to see eagles, moose, and other fauna?

  • Also - where's the best location to take a heli tour?
