Seals on ice

June, 2007

If I haven't convinced you that the "early" season (late spring, actually) is one of the best times to be here in Southeast Alaska, then just consider this; May and June are the time of year when harbor seal mothers give birth to their pups on icebergs calved from glaciers. These moms and pups are in front of the LeConte Glacier, just outside of Petersburg, Alaska.
