Orange Sunshine

One of the incredible things about the beauty of this area is that you can pull over to the side of the road and get most of your photos, such as this Mt. Edgecumbe scene, shot from my car window a few hundred yards from the grocery store I was headed to.

The Great One

Mt. McKinley, (Denali) is the tallest mountain in North America at over 20,000 feet. It rises from the plains of interior Alaska with hardly any foothills in the way. This shot was taken from Talkeetna. I'm told the top of the mountain is occasionally visible.

Smoked Sunset

On the way down Baranof Island on a commercial fishing trip we watched the effects forest fire smoke from Canada had on the setting sun.
