The Photo Prompt today from the Outdoor Blogger Network is to post up our dream destination...Well, I have been to Paradise Island - Bahamas, Hawaii - twice, and have been on a Mexican cruise. While most people would probably love to travel to some exotic tropical paradise, I tend to wish for the wooded lodge that provides expert guides to take me to the very best salmon fishing...yep, ALASKA!!
What's wrong with this picture? A bush plane, a nice fish, and a strolling bear! I'm always for adventure...why lay on a beach somewhere when I can be enjoying wildlife at its finest...
Now, you could say this guy is smiling...but, I'm thinking that he is wondering how close that bear is coming! I'm wondering if Cofisher has always had a gotee...hmmmm You tell me.
But, hey...there's always a way out. I think that I will take the plane rather than the helicopter!! : ) How would it be to fly over mountains and glaciers...tundra and grasslands...all on the way to fishing habitats?!!!
And at the end of the day, after hauling in that salmon, I could just sit back and enjoy the sunset back at the lodge. Yep, this is exactly where I want to go back someday...Because, well...the first time that I visited Alaska, it was more of a quick-settling experience that I would rather put in the back of my memory... So, here's to my dream destination and doing it up right this time!! A dream? Mmmmmm....maybe not.
