The day's exploration continued with a stop on the way home at Ataska Orchid Gardens. While this is a commercial venture, visitors are welcome to come in and admire the more than 500 blooming orchids on display. I was really planning to buy one (they ship to the mainland) until I found out they take several years to bloom. Too long when I can buy one already blooming at home.
After dark we realized it looked like the night would be clear. Perfect for a night viewing of the crater from the Jagger Museum overlook! It was! See photos
