Heading North In Alaska

After 6 days on the Kenai Peninsula including the trip to Katmai National Park, I headed north towards Denali National Park. The skies did not quite cooperate once I got to Talkeetna, so I did a little work with some macro of the beautiful fall colors on the forest floor. There were a few other shots along the way. Yes, one of the photos is supposed to be blurry. It is my artistic side.

Katmai Bears

The Alaska adventure continues. I took a seaplane to Katmai National Park to photograph brown (grizzly) bears on the Brooks River. It was an amazing trip and experience. There were bears everywhere. We were safe though. Here are some of the pics.

SeaView Cafe and Bar

Well, I finally made it to the end of the road. Quite literally. The town of Hope, Alaska is on the Kenai Peninsula and up against the rugged Alaskan Coast. Saturday night in this small community was spent at the Seaview Cafe and Bar. The music was lively and the crowd was loving it.

I have been on my first ever trip to Alaska and these are just a few of the photos that I can share at this time. The weather started out very sunny and warm. It has changed to spotty showers and a little cooler. My brother-in-law, Steve and I have gone from Anchorage to Glenallen to Paxson to Chena to Fairbanks to Denali to Anchorage. The rest of my trip will be solo and will probably include the Kenai Peninsula. We have been traveling by RV which is probably the best way to go. However, Internet coverage is spotty. We have seen the northern lights, rainbows, grizzlies, dall sheep, moose. Yes, I had a close encounter with a moose early one morning. I think that I woke her up. More later when I have Internet access and hopefully more photos.
