All the images in this book were photographed during one 50 day driving trip to and through Alaska. Although most days were rainy, there was enough significant change in the weather to provide fantastic opportunities for landscape, close-up and wildlife photography.
I spent several days in each of these areas: Juneau, Haines, Denali, Ancorage, Kenai Peninsula, Katmai National Park, Valdez, and Hyder. The photos follow my route. Along the way I saw spring, summer and fall. My hope was to see glaciers and grizzly bears. As you will see, I was able to do both and much more. We have a beautiful Mother Earth ... love her ... as she loves you with wonder, joy and respect!
