Your guide!

Hello! This is Ilene. I’m so excited to be back in Valdez, Alaska, after an adventurous winter of ski touring and hotspringing in Idaho and Colorado, and scuba diving and sea kayak guiding in warmer climes. Now I’m back amongst the iceburgs, Sea Otters, Arctic Terns, and glaciers of my favorite place in the world. . Prince William Sound, Alaska! I (and my fellow kayak guides) will be posting photos and updating this blog frequently, so check us out throughout the summer to follow our adventures, and post some comments! We love to hear from you!

While the new kayak guides were on their training trip, I held down the fort (somebody had to work around here!) and had a full week of Columbia Glacier day trips. Here are a few photos from the week. Enjoy them, and we hope to see you soon!
