Saying “Hello” From Colorado, USA

Hello to all!
I registered earlier this month for I felt ashamed since I have been reading this web site for two years now. The amount and depth of available information blows my mind.
Earlier this year I purchased an E-620 with kit lenses and a 70-300mm lens. I upgraded my equipment from an advance point & shoot Olympus SP series cameras and not so advanced cameras. Three decades ago I used a film SLR. But with three lenses, camera and filters, the weight became too much for me to transport on my touring bicycle vacations (holidays) along with clothes, tent, sleeping bag, etc. Since I have retired my bicycles, now I am the proud owner of a DSLR.
This past late May I took an Alaska Inside Passage cruise, SE corner of the state where Juneau, the state capitol is located. Unfortunately did not see much wildlife.
Doug

A big welcome from me too!
The cruise is one that I would just love to do. I would have thought that there would be loads of wildlife - what did you actually see and photograph?
