"It's like trying to describe what you feel when you're standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon or remembering your first love or the birth of your child. You have to be there to really know what it's like. -Jack Schmitt #dailyalaska . . . . . . . #snowat3800feet #fall #hike #shouldbewinter #canyon #Alaska #mountain #scenery #hiking #49thstate #907 #gobigalaska #explorealaska #alaskawild #myalaskadream #alaskatravel #instalaska #scenicalaska #travelalaska #sharingalaska #ilovealaska #naturealaska #alaskalife #alaskanadventure #outsidealaska #365alaska #stayandwander #lodgeatblackrapids #blackrapidslodge
I don’t usually participate in art contests for many reasons (inherent difficulty in objectively rating art, copy right issues, fear of rejection among others), but I made an exception for #caltech Art Contest. Was pretty stoked when my entry was selected! A beautiful print of my ‘Conifer in the mist’ photo from @kenaifjordsnps hangs at the Chandler cafe since June and now has been extended to stay till December. After that I would get to take it home! ☺️☺️ I’ve been procrastinating about visiting it, but managed last night.
Meet Bear!! The new addition to the family!! She is a 5 year old Samoyed and is sweet as can be! Such a different personality from Woody! Btw, note the lack of snow in October!!! This is a record for us!! And happy birthday to Levi, his birthday gift was a stay and hike at The Lodge at Black Rapids! #dailyalaska . . . . . . . #stillfall #fall #wheresthesnow #shouldbewinter #samoyed #Alaska #BearTheSamoyed #scenery #sammiesmile #49thstate #907 #gobigalaska #explorealaska #alaskawild #myalaskadream #alaskatravel #instalaska #scenicalaska #travelalaska #sharingalaska #ilovealaska #naturealaska #alaskalife #alaskanadventure #outsidealaska #365alaska #stayandwander #lodgeatblackrapids #blackrapidslodge
Remember you do not stop laughing when you get old, you get old because you stopped laughing. This weekend a friend came down from Anchorage and we took a road trip to Homer. It was a great adventure and we captured lots of wonderful pictures. But the trip wasn't about the pictures it was about two friends that did a lot of laughing. Laugh more often, it keeps you young. #alaska #alaskaphotography #alaskan #floatplanes #puddlejumpers #friendships #homeralaska #roadtrip #365alaska #tylereddy
It is not about the places that you see, it is people you meet. Alaska might have spectacular wildlife and the nature that surrounds you will take your breath away. But it is the people that you meet that make Alaska. #friendships #friends #alaska #alaska #goldrush #alaskan #alaskaphotography #dailylifeinalaska #365alaska #tylereddy
Life is about how you handle Plan B. I always love walking the docks. Visiting with locals working on their boats, people passing through and just looking at boats. I was taking a picture of the F/V Masonic departing the cannery when a eagle popped into the photo. Not at all what I had planned to take a photo of, but that is life. #alaskaphotography #eagles #bird #alaska #boating #harbor #sitka #sitkaalaska #eagle #365alaska #tylereddy
You do not always need to plan, just let go and let the adventure create itself. Some of life greatest adventures were unplanned and if nothing else it will always keep you guessing. I have been in Seward for a few days and have been going out and exploring the community, whenever I get a chance. One of my trips downtown ended up taking me to the Alaska Sealife Center, it is a must see if you ever make it to Seward. In fact, I am noticing that there is a lot of must sees in Seward. But hands downs it is the characters that you meet that make Alaska an Adventure. #sewardalaska #sealifecenter #fish #alaskaphotography #aquarium #tourist #365alaska #tylereddy
One of the ways we like to spend time as a family is hiking. No distractions, quality family time, and beautiful scenery bring the best memories. This particular moment of hiking Mt. Roberts in Juneau, Alaska would have been even more majestic if the weather cooperated. We were literally and figuratively in the clouds....getting absolutely drenched. It was all worth it and we celebrated with some 💣 king crab legs 🦀. . . I need to find some trails here in the Midwest. Not as much elevation but I love being out in nature with the loves of my life. . . Do you like to get out in nature with your fam bam?
Do more things that make you forget to check your phone. I have always enjoyed my trips to Denali, the people, wildlife, scenery and unexpected adventures that are around every turn in the road. But my favorite of all, my cell phone will never make a noise. The sense of urgency disappears for 10 hrs while I am in the park, it is amazing. It always reminds me to do more that make me forget about my phone. #adventurer #alaska #alaskaphotographer #denalinationalpark #nophone #365alaska #tylereddy
What do you do while watching bears in Denali National Park? Make you out binoculars and play. Because taking time to play is just as important as anything else. #denalinationalpark #playing #life #friends #friendship #silly #binoculars #365alaska #tylereddy
While driving to Denali National Park we decided to stop for ice cream. There is nothing better than true old fashion milkshakes. #milkshakes #icecream #trappercreek #365alaska #tylereddy
There is no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this. Whether I am walking to meet a friend or just strolling through the park, I normally always stop to take a picture. I met up with some friends the other day and they asked if they should get their camera from their car. I asked, "what for" and they pointed to my camera. I commented that I always try to carry it, I have missed to many pictures. Guess what she had in her hand the next time we got together? #eagles #baldeagle #soaring #alaska #sitka #sitkaalaska #365alaska #tylereddy
Curiosity is the spark of every good idea. I knew that it was going to be another golden sunset, but I wanted to capture a different angle of the Russian Orthodox Church in Sitka. Instead of watching the sunset, I was busy looking for an unobstructed view of the church. Find a different way to look at things you see everyday, the future belongs to the curious. #sitka #alaska #sitkaalaska #russianorthodox #sunset #goldensunset #alaskaphotography #365alaska #tylereddy #southeastalaska
Enjoy every moment now, because it will all be over before you know it. Calysta helped drive the boat this weekend. Lots of fun was had by all. #alaskafamily #familyfun #boating #fatherdaughter #bigsmile #boatsafety #365alaska #sitkaalaska #tylereddy

Not far from the harbor, you can find "Creek Street" with numerous houses supported by wooden stilts. It is infamous as being Ketchikan's red light district (between 1903 and 1954). Now it's home to shops, restaurants and Dolly's House museum. . . . #creekstreet #alaska #travelalaska #visitalaska #cruisinalaska #ketchikan #365alaska #cruise #cruisevacation #cruiselover #travel #traveller #travelpic #oceaniacruises #oceaniaregatta #discover #kreuzfahrt
This trip almost didn't happen. As we were talking about the possibility of a @halcruises with some friends during the summer of 2016, there were a lot of "what ifs" that made me not sure if we should commit. I was going to be unemployed 3 months after the trip, and at 1 year in the pool we were sure that a placement was imminent. But we went. It was one of the best trips ever. We were on the final cruise of the season when we should have been walking through each port in rain gear; however, other than a bit of drizzle in Juneau, it was perfectly clear skies and sunny. On our day in Ketchikan as we pulled into Port with sunny skies, we booked a flight seeing trip out to the Misty Fijords. It was amazing, and a perfect way to finish off Alaska. So grab some friends and take the trip. It is worth it.
This was kinda a cool rainbow, it looked like it was dancing in the rain! We got Woody an orange vest for while we were camping after we were told of a story when someone was hunting and mistook someones dog for a wolf! #dailyalaska . . . . . . . . . . . #woodythesamoyed #denalihighway #rockcreek #tanglelakes #rainbow #rain #Alaska #scenery #49thstate #samoyedlovers #gobigalaska #explorealaska #alaskawild #myalaskadream #alaskatravel #instalaska #scenicalaska #travelalaska #sharingalaska #samoyed #naturealaska #alaskalife #alaskanadventure #outsidealaska #365alaska #camping #getoutside #stayandwander
Saw this beautiful juvenile bald eagle perched on a tree on the Russian River in Alaska. Also got a shot of a bald eagle. Beautiful birds! #eagles #juvenileeagle #alaska #russianriver #russianriveralaska #wildlife #alaskaeagles #travelalaska #wildalaska #kenaipeninsula #alaskawild #explorealaska #discoveralaska #365alaska #scenicalaska #nature #sharingalaska #juvenileeagles
Along the Russian River in Alaska we came upon a beautiful juvenile bald eagle (their heads turn white around 4 years old). It was enjoying the last part of a salmon. Further downstream a black bear poked his head out of the bushes and did a little river bank exploring before heading back into the brush. #alaska #discoveralaska #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #365alaska #scenicalaska #sharingalaska #alaskalife #nature #baldeagle #blackbear #russianriver
We took a hike along the Russian River in Alaska near the area where the Russian River and Kenai River merge. We were below the falls when a sub adult Alaskan Brown Bear (grizzly bear) climbed down the hillside. He continued to search the water looking for fish. He “snorkeled” by looking underwater for fish. He continued down one side of the river while we followed on the other side. He paused mid river then took off in full charge for a salmon. He missed his target but was now on my side of the river, and was heading up river. We had to get going. The show was over but not forgotten. #alaska #discoveralaska #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #365alaska #alaskalife #nature #alaskabrownbear #alaskanbrownbear #russianriver
Our helicopter took us to Lake Clark National Park for an incredible view of the “grizzly mazes” which are actually Alaskan Brown Bear (grizzly bear) paths through the dense grasses (which are chest high). These mazes went on for miles and miles. I estimate we saw 75+ bears. If you pinch and zoom you will see a bear in the first pic (lower central) and 2 bears (lower left) in the second pic. After landing we observed many bears eating the grass (not in the mazes). Momma bear and 1 year old cub are always sniffing the air between rest and eating. #alaska #discoveralaska #nationalparkpictures #nps #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #alaskanationalparks #365alaska #scenicalaska #sharingalaska #lakeclarknps #lakeclarknationalpark #alaskalife #nature #alaskabrownbear #bear #cub
We took an all day helicopter tour yesterday. The first part of the trip was about the glaciers. It was amazing to fly low and slow over the glaciers to see them up close. The video gives you some idea of the experience. We then landed on the glacier and walked around, even sipped glacier water. I included a pic of me with our ride for the day. Flying around we saw black bears and Dall sheep. The tide was the lowest of the year at negative 28 feet! Look how it drained the bay in one of the pictures. The final image is of homer spit. #alaska #discoveralaska #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #365alaska #scenicalaska #sharingalaska #alaskalife #nature #glacier #homeralaska
We helicoptered in to Lake Clark National Park to see Alaskan Brown Bears. Amazing animals! We flew over The Grizzly Maze - absolutely spectacular as there were many bears in the maze! Got very wet at the end of the day but it was a great day! So many bears!!

We helicoptered to several glaciers in the Kachemak Bay State Park and had the amazing experience of landing on the Nuka Glacier!! We tasted fresh glacier water and we walked on the glacier. The last image is a video flyover showing the spectacular view!!! #alaska #homer #nukaglacier #glacier #glaciers #helicopter #kachemakbaystatepark #landingonaglacier #discoveralaska #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #365alaska #scenicalaska #sharingalaska #alaskalife #alaskaultimatesafaris
This hike is just steps outside the back door of @lodgeatblackrapids , out favorite getaway and where we have celebrated our last two anniversaries! This is Onemile Creek, there are 3 waterfalls along this hike... To bad Woody wasnt a goat to climb to the other two! #dailyalaska . . . . . . . . . . . #onemilecreek #creek #lodgeatblackrapids #blackrapidslodge #landscape #Alaska #thelodgeatblackrapids #scenery #summer #49thstate #907 #gobigalaska #explorealaska #alaskawild #myalaskadream #alaskatravel #instalaska #scenicalaska #travelalaska #sharingalaska #ilovealaska #naturealaska #alaskalife #alaskanadventure #outsidealaska #365alaska #staysndwander
Bald Eagles! We were very fortunate to photograph the beautiful Bald Eagles in Kachemak Bay state park which is outside of Homer Alaska. They are exceptionally challenging and fast moving. I pulled just a few low resolution images from my camera to share. Notice in the first picture the catch in its talons. The next sequence shows the approach, talons extended, then the dip in the water. At one point there were many perching in the trees. #alaska #discoveralaska #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #365alaska #scenicalaska #sharingalaska #alaskalife #nature #kachemakbay #baldeagle #homeralaska
We had a great day on Kachemak Bay Alaska. We watched the fisherman haul in their nets that had salmon. There were all variety of birds and including the elusive puffin. Seeing and hearing a sea otter eating a crab was great. You could hear him chomping on it. #alaska #discoveralaska #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #365alaska #scenicalaska #sharingalaska #alaskalife #nature #homer #puffin #seaotter
We had a great morning on the water in Homer, Alaska. We took a water taxi to Kachemak Bay State Park and were lucky enough to see some eagles. They are hard to photograph! These photos were all taken with my iPhone X. #alaska #homer #discoveralaska #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #makoswatertaxi #365alaska #scenicalaska #sharingalaska #eagles #alaskalife #nature #takenbymyiphonex
The flight into Anchorage Alaska was great and the glaciers were beautiful. We stopped by the store once in Alaska for a few food items and bear spray. The third picture shows you how serious they take their bug repellent, with 6 rows to select from. I brought my own but should I run low I’m covered. #alaska #discoveralaska #travelalaska #alaskawild #explorealaska #365alaska #scenicalaska #sharingalaska #alaskalife
Her: "I don't know about this hunny, the road has turned into a River!" Him: "I got this! That's why I got the off road package!" Haha Driving the goat trail to try and see the Gulkana glacier, he was right, we made it just fine! #dailyalaska . . . . . . . . . #gulkanaglacier #rockcreek #whentherivertakesoverthetrail #Alaska #offroad #scenery #summer #49thstate #907 #gobigalaska #explorealaska #alaskawild #myalaskadream #alaskatravel #instalaska #scenicalaska #travelalaska #sharingalaska #ilovealaska #naturealaska #alaskalife #alaskanadventure #outsidealaska #365alaska
The rain finally let up enough to take the inflatable paddle board out for a stroll from the upper Tangle Lakes to the lower Tangle Lakes via the Tangle River. FYI make sure to inflate those things all the way...otherwise it is a lot more work!!! Haha we know from experience. Also, note to self: next time make sure to bring the instructions for the folding kyak and not leave them on the floor at the top of the stairs. Next time Woody will also get to try out the paddle board since his paw couldn't get wet this trip! #dailyalaska . . . . . . . . . . . #denalihighway #tangleriver #tanglelakes #paddleboarding #paddleboard #Alaska #scenery #49thstate #907 #gobigalaska #explorealaska #alaskawild #myalaskadream #alaskatravel #instalaska #scenicalaska #travelalaska #sharingalaska #ilovealaska #naturealaska #alaskalife #alaskanadventure #outsidealaska #365alaska #kulacooler #bote #botepaddleboard #boteboards #inflatablepaddleboard
We had such a great time camping near Tangle Lakes next to Rock Creek! But beware or prepared for the mosquitos. These birds were flying around in a big flock most of the time, eating the mosquitos I imagine! They were fun to watch! #dailyalaska . . . . . . . . . #pleaseeatallthemosquitos #denalihighway #rockcreek #tanglelakes #mosquito #birds #Alaska #scenery #49thstate #flockofbirds #gobigalaska #explorealaska #alaskawild #myalaskadream #alaskatravel #instalaska #scenicalaska #travelalaska #sharingalaska #naturealaska #alaskalife #alaskanadventure #outsidealaska #365alaska #camping #birdlife #flock #stayandwander

You know the mosquitos are bad when the dog wants to wear the head net! Lol we put it on him jokingly at first but he realized what it was for and after we took it off kept nudging it to put back on! #smartdog Btw, the Clam pop up gazebo is amazing!!! Literally took minutes to set up on the first try! #dailyalaska #woodythesamoyed . . . . . . . . . #denalihighway #rockcreek #tanglelakes #mosquito #mosquitoheadnet #Alaska #scenery #49thstate #samoyedlovers #gobigalaska #explorealaska #alaskawild #myalaskadream #alaskatravel #instalaska #scenicalaska #travelalaska #sharingalaska #samoyed #naturealaska #alaskalife #alaskanadventure #outsidealaska #365alaska #camping #clamgazebo #clamshelter
