The Tongass National Forest draws millions of tourists each year. They come to kayak to the face of thundering waterfalls, to watch bears fishing in thriving salmon streams, and hike through some of the last old growth temperate rainforest on earth. For those of us who live here, the Tongass is where we go to breathe deep and recharge. It’s a spectacular and unique place that gives us so much. . One way to give back is to become a member of Sitka Conservation Society! We’re a local, grassroots conservation group dedicated to protecting the natural environment of the Tongass National Forest while supporting the development of sustainable communities across Southeast Alaska. . When you join SCS, you join a community of people like you who care about protecting the Tongass and working together toward sustainability. You advocate for the places you love. And most importantly—you raise your voice. Our members increase our influence with decision-makers, and we bring your voices directly to the people who most need to hear what you have to say. . You also get our calendar and annual report, filled with stunning shots of the Tongass by local photographers and stories of Alaskans working together on the ground to build resilient communities. .

Complete Solitude... My challenge today was to have 1 hour or more of complete solitude. No negative thoughts, only peace, acceptance and love. This was VERY difficult for me. Practice makes perfect. I am going to try this everyday. Feeling recharged, reset. #love #solitude #selflove #timeforachange #funnydog #cutedog #funnyvideos #alaska
Home sweet home. Time for some family time over the holidays. #daddysgirl #homesweethome #cancersucks #sitkaalaska
Beautiful morning for a mountain run with my sweetheart to Beaver Lake near Sitka, Alaska.
The largest rubber-band ball weighs over 9,000 pounds! The longest duration of balancing an umbrella on one finger is 2 hours 22 mins 22 seconds. The fastest time to pop 100 balloons by a dog is 28.22 seconds.

On a past photo assignment to Sitka, Alaska, one of my primary cameras went down and my backup camera, the Fujifilm X100T got a serious workout. The Fujifilm produced some absolute gems!

😂 Sunset is happening at about 3:30pm these days, which is not what I'd call ideal... But I guess it is pretty damn beautiful when we're not getting sideways rain and winter squalls. ... So we got that going for us, which is nice. . . . . . _____ #sitka #ultraviolet #spruce #baranofisland #alaska #alaskan #clear #view #sitkaharbor #rainforest #ak #islandlife #sitkaalaska #island #artistsofinstagram #hiking #sealaska #ocean #scenic #pacific #ocean #islands #sitkaspruce #sunset #cold #boats
Santa, I think she’s on to us.
Did you know that Sitka was the capital of Russian America. The transfer of Alaska from Russia took place in Sitka in 1867 for a purchase price of $7.2 million. • @roamtheplanet @instagood • • • • • • • • • #itinza #sitka #alaska #sitkaalaska #usa #travel #tlpicks #photooftheday #stayandwonder #instagood #liveauthentic #awakethesoul #welivetoexplore #aov #exploretocreate #liveoutdoors #roamtheplanet #bestvacations #familytravels #goadventuretogether #wonderlust #travelwithme #wonderful_places #tourism

I love the “coat closet” at the lighthouse. Not so much for the design, but because each piece has a story... The mirror was made for me by my dear friend @ninnob3636 she has a gift of refinishing furniture like I have never seen. The wall hanging came from a favorite local store @thecellaralaska they have an awesome home collection. The shelf was salvaged from an old boat dock at my home, and the whale tale hooks are from Ellen. My design mentor... Each piece that I select for the lighthouse has meaning and energy that connects me to them. That’s how I am able to create spaces that make our guests feel at home. 💕 #sitkalighthouse #sitkaalaska #tripadvisor #alaskaairlines #travelalaska #alaskatravel #visitsitka #hgtv #joannagainescomevisit #lighthouse #lighthouselovers

Prototype double growler carrier. Picked up some pallets from @baranofislandbrew to make something to carry a growler or two easier and be able to stand them up on the drive home without tipping over and rolling around. I drew up about a dozen designs and slapped this one together to see how it might work. Maybe put together some nicer ones if anyone’s interested in one. #sitkaalaska #baranofislandbrewing #recycledpallets

Sitka constantly blows me away with the tremendous beauty here daily. If you take a few brief moments to just sit in the sun and take in all the life around you, I promise you won't walk away empty handed. You'll have seen eagles soaring high catching the breeze that keeps them steadily flying between mountains, whales exhaling giant bursts of water taller then me, song birds singing their tune and whirling by, and maybe just maybe a small clan of sea lions may pass by and play right in front of you. Life is truly incredible, so don't forget to stop and take it all in every once in awhile. #visitsitka #humpbackwhales #decembersnow #firstsnow #sitkaalaska #lifeisbeatiful #nature #reducereuserecycle

throwback to october when my mama and i visited my sister’s sweet family in sitka alaska 🌲 we had lots of fun adventures, crossed fresh bear tracks, went fishing (not pictured & i didn’t catch anything but the salmon were totally teasing me), ate tasty food (scroll waaay back), saw thousands (millions?) of salmon spawning & dying, squeezed my cutest baby niece (ok tied w my other niece who is now a teenager), played frisbee w a silly smart doggie, and other family fun stuff... wish they didn’t live so far away!

Our coastal communities, like Sitka, are surrounded by the Tongass National Forest. The rivers of the Tongass provide the wild salmon we rely on. We hunt Sitka black tail deer along the ridges of the mountains in the fall. We have access to world class trails, right here in our backyard. The Tongass is home, and its richness is what sustains our communities. . One way to give back to the forest that gives us so much is to become a member of Sitka Conservation Society! We’re a local, grassroots conservation group dedicated to protecting the natural environment of the Tongass National Forest while supporting the development of sustainable communities across Southeast Alaska. . When you join SCS, you join a community of people like you who care about protecting the Tongass and working together toward sustainability. You advocate for the places you love.

I suspect this lily has a direct connection to E.W. Merrill, well known Sitka photographer of the early 1900s. In my talk this Thursday evening (Dec 13th, 7:30pm at UAS), one of the things I will share about is an attempt I made to retake a photo of his. #sitkanature #sitkaalaska #waterlily #waterdrops
“We tramped through chest-deep forests of sedges, our boots sinking into the deep mud.” – said Caitlin Purdome, who led a crew of young volunteers into the Duncan Salt Chuck Wilderness this summer to remove brass buttons, a fast-spreading invasive plant. Immersed in the wilderness, they experienced first-hand the challenges and rewards of on-the-ground stewardship. Projects like these are crucial to training the next generation of wilderness stewards and inspiring an ethic of care.

“When this all started, the tribes hadn’t worked together in this capacity regionally before. Once this began, it really opened the door for the tribes to ask, ‘What else do we have common concerns about, what else can we work together on?’" --Chris Whitehead, Environmental Program Manager at Sitka Tribe of Alaska (STA) . Today, the Southeast Alaska Tribal Ocean Research partnership (SEATOR) is helping to not only provide safe access to an important subsistence resource but is also leading the way in ocean acidification research. . SEATOR was formed by the STA in 2013 as a network of tribal governments, universities, and nonprofits to monitor harmful algae blooms in the state. . Today, the lab monitors plankton samples under the microscope, tests for harmful toxins and sends out warnings when toxin levels are too high for safe foraging. . Learn more about how SEATOR and other projects across the state are bringing people together to support healthy ecosystems and communities at http://sustainablesoutheast.net/storytelling/4390/ .
