In September 2015, my sister and I traveled to Haines, Alaska to visit my Aunt Maisie. She and my Uncle Dave (who gave me my first camera) had moved to Haines in the 1960’s. I lived there for about a year in the mid-70’s. Now in her 90’s, Maisie had just given up her house for an assisted living facility. (Port Chilkoot is part of Haines.)

My sister and I spent time visiting, in between trips looking for photos, birds and bears. One day on our way back into town, we pulled into the viewpoint overlooking the harbor. I liked the contrast between the new snow on the peaks and the clouds coming in.
