Alaska: it’s big, bold, and wild. It’s a place where photographs can’t possibly convey the majesty and diverse ecosystems. We saw only a very small portion of interior and coastal Alaska. And just that tiny sliver confirmed to us its immensity and magical qualities.
For my hubby, it was a bittersweet visit to see once again the land and feel the spirit that captured his young adult life. For me, it was a vast learning experience and a challenge to take it all in. We wore ourselves out on this journey, but we were so thankful that we finally accomplished it.
If you ever have a change to go – GO! If not, I hope that my photos will fuel your imagination and help you envision the last great wilderness of our country. Sit back, click on the images to see them in a bigger format, and enjoy!
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a variety of “grand scenics” of Alaska. Then I will begin sharing photos of “Katmai brown bears” and finish up with a “wildlife wonders” series.
And so it begins…
