The season is winding down here in Alaska so I decided I would post fifteen of my favorite images from this year’s Alaska Range trips. If you have been following the blog you know it was a rough year in the mountains. I am mostly disappointed that I got nothing of merit from the southern section of the Alaska Range, except some broken toes, a sprained wrist, lots of bruises and a damaged ego.
I will be posting a larger selection of images on a dedicated page in the near future, along with photographs from my previous work in the Alaska Range. I am already plotting next year’s trips, six expeditions total.
Please feel free to comment on each image and share them through your social networks, the more people who learn about the project, the better of a success it will be when its finished.
The beautiful Thunder Mountain, Denali National Park and Preserve
Avalanche off the North-West face of Mount Hunter, Denali National Park and Preserve.
Denali is often capped with a cloud. Denali creates its own weather and tourist have about a 30% chance of a clear enough day to see the mountain’s summit.
The beautiful north face of Avalanche Spire, Denali National Park and Preserve
Cathedral Peaks (triple peak on the left) and Kichatna Spire (on the right), Denali National Park and Preserve
