Our first full day in Alaska presented us with the bounty of spring! Guests hiked along the Lake Eva Trail, which follows a salmon stream through hemlock and spruce forests on Baranoff Island. Along the trail, new vegetation, flowers, and berries were thriving in the temperate rainforest environment. Guests spotted fresh signs of active bears, bald eagles, banana slugs, waterfowl, salmon fry, and even a swan and beaver swimming in Lake Eva!
