Fall Color, Wrangell – St. Elias National Park.

fall color near Tana River, Wrangell - St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

Here’s a second post for today. I’m trying to see if I’ve fixed a few things that have suddenly been messing with my blog – darn pesky hackers! So here goes:

I just finished a trip to Ross Green Lake, Wrangell – St. Elias National Park – we basecamped near the lake, and spent our days exploring the valley, the nearby Tana Glacier, and photographing the fall colors. The weather wasn’t the best – a day in the rain on a chunk of ice that’s part of the largest non-polar ice field in the world is a rough gig. But we did have a good time. This image is of a small valley that runs down to the Tana River valley, show from the plane as we flew to Ross Green Lake. I hadn’t even landed for our trip and I already got some nice photos. Flying around Wrangell – St. Elias National Park is a real treat, and I’m fortunate that I get to do it as often as I do. It’s simply amazing to view from the air.

    That is a breath taking shot!!! Even in the worst years for fall color I am quite sure that the parks in AK beat the one’s in the lower 48 hands down! I really like the composition, the viewers eye just runs along with the river cutting right through the middle of the picture.

    Oh yeah, you’ve probably heard. They just lifted the ban on all offshore oil drilling. Where’s that box of bandaids?? Sorry.
