Into The Wild West

About 2 years ago, i started reading and doing research on the great state of Alaska. I became intrigued with the sheer size of the state and it's vast Wilderness and beauty. I am on a mission now. I don't know exactly when, but I am planning a drive up the Western US coast to the Alcan Highway and into the last great frontier. I want to photograph everything from McKinley to Grizzly bears. Another treat will be to witness the Aurora Borealis. I absolutely love wild places and backpacking in the backcountry so i think Alaska can satisfy that need. I'm picturing myself standing in a mountain river stream, my Subaru nearby, overlooking a beautiful vista revealing snow capped mountains and lush woodlands! Yeah, i'm as scared of the bears as everyone else, but they won't keep me away!

Thanks! i'm definitely going. There's so much wild to explore i can't wait!!!

Alaska sure can be a pretty place depending on where you are at in Alaska. We had a polar bear here just off the Yukon delta a month ago that made the local news. Good luck on your trip..if you ever get to AK.
