The state of Alaska is so big there are really no generalizations that can be made about the weather, except that it can range from miserable to glorious. We will have the amazing opportunity to be out in nature watching bears in their remote, natural habitat. In order to experience these up-close encounters, we will be walking around out in the elements. It is not unusual for coastal Alaska to experience days of rain and cooler weather at any time of year. Thus, it is critical that you come prepared for the possibility of inclement weather and try not to be dismayed should it occur. It is, after all, part of Alaska’s character. Storms and clouds can add drama, especially in the mountains. Photographically, days with a high overcast soften the light and reduce harsh contrast; it is the best kind of light for close-ups of flowers and wildlife.
