Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

During my recovery I’ve watched a lot of movies. A few days ago I watched The Godfather, arguably the best movie of all time. Today I’m watching Godfather 2, equally as good in its own way. Brando, De Niro, Pacino, at the height of their abilities. And the writing…oh my. Lines that have become more famous than the actors.

“I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse.”

More AK photos

Here’s a photo from the Glacier Gardens in Juneau, an odd little rain forest paradise. Privately-owned and created, it’s an unexpected little gem we visited on a gloomy day. The light wasn’t good but on a sunny day it would have been glorious. They are famous for their upside-down tree planters, one pictured here.

Here’s a view of the cluttered harbor at Ketchikan, the self-proclaimed salmon fishing capital of the world.

Here are my fellow travelers – brother-in-law Dave, Kathryn, and Dave’s wife Denise. They were thrilled to be there.

All in all, I’m *really* not happy with the AK pictures. I’m not getting the results I wanted with the new gear. Just like golf, I know that the fault lies with the human, not the gear. I’m finding the Fuji system very hard to master.
