Thompson Ridge, Wrangell – St. Elias National Park.

Sand Dunes, fall colors, Thompson Ridge, Wrangell - St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

hey Folks,

Here’s one of the few images I’ve made this summer with blue sky! This particular afternoon we got a little light, and I hiked and photographed as much as I could. Of course, by the time the light started to get really warm, low cloud rolled in from the southwest and all went flat again.

I like this scene, with the sand dunes undulating beneath the spires of Thompson Ridge. Ross Green Lake lies between the green willow-covered ridge in the middle ground and the jagged crags of Thompson Ridge beyond.

    Probably the only place where you can find sand dunes in the vicinity of snow capped peaks! I love this shot simply for the reason you have mentioned, blue skies with clouds rolling in. I particularly don’t like clear blue skies, as long as it has some puffy clouds with the blue visible, wait a min, that’s what they call an Alaskan cloud :P…i’m okay with it. Great shot, very pretty!
