Waterfall, Wrangell – St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Waterfall on the East Fork Tributary of the Little Bremner River, Wrangell - St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

Here’s an image from the recent Bremner Mines to Tebay Lakes trip we did. This one is of a small waterfall we passed by as we paralleled the East Fork of the Little Bremner River, heading west down out of the pass at Harry’s Gulch. This was definitely one of the coolest sections of the hike. The night before we camped on a grassy bench just below the pass, had a visit at dinner time from a grizzly bear, and then enjoyed a really delightful walk down the valley. The stream grew larger and larger as other tributaries ran into it – up at the head of the pass it was a fraction of the size it was here. Shortly after we stopped for this scene, we had a creek crossing of our own. The first of 2 that required some caution. Fortunately everyone did great, and nobody took a dunking – just as well, because there were some nasty falls downstream that could’ve been problematic – like, really problematic.

Anyway, we had a great day hiking down the valley. This scene really caught my eye, and the creek washed into a tight deep ravine just below here as well, which was pretty cool. At the end of the day we camped high on a ridge with iews back up this valley – pretty sweet (not as sweet as my usual campsites, but someone else chose this one – I’m sure they’ll let it be known who).

I’m heading back to the park for another week, so I’ll schedule some posts for the interim and then reply when I return – stay tuned.

    That is awesome! And even a visit from a friendly grizzly, we hope!! Sounds wonderful,Carl! How I envy you. But not in a bad way. My time is coming. I’m one of those broke Americans that has to buy 2 tires at a time for my S-10!!!Stay safe wherever you wander off.

    Really nice picture Carl! Wish that the mountain in the top right was in full view, but my guess is since you wanted to get the foreground in the picture, you had to cut out part of the mountain and meter off of the stream and foreground. Nice composition.

    Hey Beth,

    I hear ya – trust me, I hear you!

    Hey Sai,

    Yeah, if the sky were better, I’d have shot it wider, but the cloudy overcast sky was a bit much, I thought.

    Hey Mark,

    Thanks man – I do indeed love the place.
