Amazing Views in Western Australia

Abundant with nectar, banksias play a vital role in the Australian bush
We enjoyed some amazing views during our recent visit to Western Australia in Oct/November.  Explore some of my 360 photos with your mouse and view a short video clip of my climb up a giant Karri tree.

Look Up!!....WAAAY Up!!  This is one of the giant old growth Karri trees in Western Australia.

Here's a short video showing my climb into the top of one of these giants.

As you can see, I had the fun and privilege of climbing the Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree, one of the remaining old growth Karri trees.

The karri tree, which grows in the forests of South-West Western Australia, is the third tallest tree in Australia and one of the tallest species in the world, reaching heights of ninety metres.

Here's a wonderful video exploring the world of the Karri trees posted by Australian Geographic.

Kodiak Bear - short video

Kodiak Bear roughly 3 yrs old fishing for Salmon
We had a great outing on Kodiak Island with Ranger Kiel in October while lecturing on board the Westerdam.  A big thank you to all the wonderful guests who attended my presentations and gave us such positive support!  Here's the short video clip that I presented during one of my talks. 
Happy travels!!
