    Default Alaska Vacation Photos

    I recently got back from a ten day trip to Alaska and just got my photo gallery online from the trip. Thought I'd share a few of them on here.

    Here is a link to the full gallery. Click!



    Flew into the Alaska back country in Wrangell St. Elias National Park for four days of camping with a local guide.
    This is our airplane leaving after dropping us off in the middle of the empty park. There is probably nobody around for over 30 miles and we are the first people in this area this year.


    View of our campsite. You can see our tents in the bottom of the photo.


    A view from our campsite of the valley below.


    More stuff from Wrangell St. Elias National Park.








    Shots from other parts of Alaska.






    My rental car. (see there is car related content in this post... )


    And my wife and I sitting on a glacier.

    Oh wow, that's beautiful. I especially like the ones you took from the plane.

    Yeah Manly, that thing probably weighs as much as my whole backpack full of camera gear.

    Just absolutely, positively amazing stuff. I can't want to eventually get to a track where you are shooting so I can have some pictures like this of my car in action.

    Next track day I'll be shooting will be the July 26 and 27 Auto Club Speedway event, but Steve, I wouldn't think you'd come down to SoCal for the the Auto Club Speedway Infield. I don't know my schedule for the rest of the year yet (some big work commitments I am trying to figure out), but check my website occasionally to see what is coming up for me.

    Thought I'd post a panoramic photo I finally got around to creating from this trip. This was the view from our campsite. Made getting out of the tent in the morning quite a bit easier. I just wanted to sit there and stare at the landscape.

    Crap! I am surprised a track-going city-dwelling boy like you did not get lost and eaten by a bear out there!!!

    You escaped man by a thin margin and you don't even know it. That is wildland dude!!!

    Ah! Quite the contrary! If you knew how much of an outdoors man I really am, you'd be that much more surprised how fast I am on the track.

    And bears? I've got two new bear skin rugs at home now. I visited the wilderness for interior decorating motivations.
