See Alaska Right! A Week Aboard UnCruise's Wilderness Adventurer | Seattle Gay News
"Look over there!" Jill, the woman who became one of my regular mealtime companions aboard the Wilderness Adventurer, was pointing out the window of the van. "Bald eagles!"
Wes, our driver, shrugged. "Yeah, probably about 30 or 40. They're trash birds."
I blinked. "What?"
"They're trash birds! Y'know, scavengers. They eat scraps. The ravens around here pick on 'em all the time."
Thus began my weeklong sojourn into the wild and wonderful world of Southeast Alaska, a trip generously provided to me by Seattle's own UnCruise Adventures.
