About the Author

Barrett Hedges
bearhead111 Tullahoma, TN
I graduated from Carson-Newman College in May 2008, with a BA in Photography. Immediately after graduation I went to Denali National Park to work at a hotel for the summer. On my off days and weekends I hiked through much of the park. It was an incredible experience. The next summer I went to Katmai National Park, in Alaska, and was the tour bus driver to The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. Katmai has the largest population of protected brown bears of any national park, and I saw bears every day I was there. Working around these animals was an awesome experience. During the winters I have worked at Beaver Creek ski resort in Colorado. On off days and while skiing I will still enjoy the outdoors and go take pictures. Check out my website,, to see my pictures.

Just a phenomenal book. Incredible photos and great commentary as well. I have been to Denali multiple times and am heading back again in early August. You can tell that you have an eye for photography and a passion for Denali. I hope you will be able to go back again in the future.
