Water Reflection Abstracts from Aialik Glacier, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska - I took an all-day wildlife watching boat tour out to Aialik Glacier which is located deep into the heart of Kenai Fjords National Park. The boat ride was rough so I wasn't feeling the best but the stunning sights and sounds of the glacier calving repeatedly was enough to resuscitate me. The glacier calving caused some unique water ripples beside the boat so I managed to photograph numerous frames including this one. #alaska #kenaifjords #nationalpark #water #abstract #naturephotography
This mural is of the Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska. You can see it in the Caribou diorama at the Wonders of Wildlife museum!
One reason I'm excited about our move to Seattle is the proximity to this amazing place. I'll probably have to get an @alaskaair frequent flyer card or learn how to row a boat, right @hwilliams000 ? #kenaifjords #kenaifjordsnationalpark #seward #glacier #fjord #alaskalife #alaska
The Harding Icefield Trail is one of my favorite hikes we’ve ever gone on, and one of the hardest. 8.2-mile round trip, gaining almost 1,000 feet per mile, some of it through snow (in July). That view, though. #nashesinalaska * * * * * #alaska #nationalparks #kenaifjords #hardingicefield #seward #trekking #hiking #hikingadventures #travel #travelgram #instatravel #wanderlust #traveladdict #photooftheday

2 months ago today. Savage Alpine Trail, Denali National Park. @masterbrucejr how was this two months ago?! 🏔🌲✨ . “When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.” - Wendell Berry, The Peace of the Wild Things. . #alaska #denalinationalpark #ak #nationalpark #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #sheexplores #andshesdopetoo #diversityinadventure #alpine #optoutside #explore #adventure #neverstopexploring #keepitwild #wildernessculture #kenaifjords #kenaipeninsula #hardingicefield
“Glacial pace is actually an incorrect concept. The #glaciers move a lot faster and they react a lot faster than people imagine. “~James Balog Come #explore the glaciers of the #kenaifjords with us this summer! We have a spring special going on, and can offer discounts on larger parties as well! Avoiding the hustle of town by operating and departing right off of our #homestead a few miles #south of #Seward , we can take you out to this dynamic area and show you our #Alaska ! Get on one of these trips while supplies last!! #sewardalaska #kenaifjordsnationalpark #kayak #travel
A glacier will frequently move forward one foot while retreating three feet ... Which reminds me a lot of my self #alaska #kenaifjords
There are so many ways to explore the unbelievable beauty of #KenaiFjords #NationalPark in #Alaska . Take a boat tour or kayak in a remote fjord to be surrounded by pristine scenery and abundant wildlife. Hike to the top of the Harding Icefield Trail or book a scenic overflight to get a sense of @kenaifjordsnps 's vastness. Cast a line into the icy cold waters for some outstanding fishing.

Just reminiscing about this beautiful day in Alaska on the Harding Icefield trail. #optoutside #hiking #alaska #lifeofadventure #naturelovers #alaskalife #mountains #snow #scenery #kenaifjords #seward
The Kenai Fjords National Park is an awesome park to visit. It's mostly accessible by water, and "the park maintains public-use cabins and shelters in coastal areas and at the edge of the Harding Icefield. Some of these are on native corporation lands, with a portion of the use fee going to the native community." - wiki • • • • • #alaska #alaskan #alaskalife #alaskanadventures #alaskaliving #alaskalove #alaskabound #alaskansummer #alaskaphotographer #alaskanlife #alaskanadventure #alaskaphotography #alaskarailroad #alaskahighway #naturealaska #Seward #Sewardalaska #Kenaifjordstours #Kenai #Kenaifjords #seascape #seascapephotography #seascapes #seascape_lovers #mountaineers #mountainside #mountain_world #mountaintop #mountainstories #mountainlife
Resurrection Bay received its name from Alexandr Baranov, who was forced to retreat into the bay during a bad storm in the Gulf of Alaska. The bay remains ice-free even in winter and is protected from storms and erosion by a series of barrier islands. - Wiki • • • • • #alaska #alaskan #alaskalife #alaskanadventures #alaskaliving #alaskalove #alaskabound #alaskansummer #alaskaphotographer #alaskanlife #alaskanadventure #alaskaphotography #alaskarailroad #alaskahighway #naturealaska #Seward #Sewardalaska #Kenaifjordstours #Kenai #Kenaifjords #seascape #seascapephotography #seascapes #seascape_lovers #landscapeshot #landscapehunters #landscapeslovers #landscapelove #Landscapes_lovers #landscapecapture
Time stopped at Kenai Fjords. There was no rush to be elsewhere. I felt perfectly content wandering around as much of the park as I could. Somehow we ended up stuck in a deep valley, and bears are a real thing, you know ? I can’t say we all didn’t freak out a bit, but nothing came to investigate us. Looking back, I can’t help but laugh. We ended up having to climb a giant rock wall to find our way onward again. It was wild. . . • For more travel stories, follow my photography account - @shay_b926 - as I instablog my adventures! 60.1784° N, 149.6494° W. #picoftheday #instaphotos #instatravel #instagood #thereisaworldoutthere #adventure #travel #mytravelgram #travelphotography #beautiful #love #instaadventure #travelalaska #alaskanadventures #exitglacier #kenaifjords #wanderlust #glacier #travelmore #travelfar #nationalparks

“When we tug at a single thing in nature, we find it attached to the rest of the world.” ~John Muir #Kayaking through the #kenaifjords , its so easy to realize that its not an #escape from the real world, its actually immersing yourself in it the real world. #Alaska is calling! Come check out #Seward next #summer and let us show you the amazing sites of the area! Operating right from our #beachfront #homestead , we’ve been showing people our Alaska since 1982.

Who can name this striking rock formation in Aialik Bay? It is often home to nesting puffins! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #majormarinetours #humpday #puffins #kenai #fjords #alaska #travelalaska #optoutside #exploremore #kenaifjords #travel #seward #sewardalaska
The lion of the sea. Naturalist George Wilhelm Steller spotted this animal in 1741 and thought they resembled lions. That's why they're called the Steller sea lion. #KenaiFjordsTours | #WildlifeWednesday

Dreaming of mountains, snow, glaciers and salmon on this rainy hump day. Favorite stop on trip so far: Seward, Alaska. This was taken at the emergency shelter near the end of the Harding Icefield Trail, Kenai Fjords National Park. Glad I came prepared with the snowshoes. #kenaifjordsnationalpark #kenaifjords #nationalpark #snowshoeing #snow #glacier #hardingicefield #hardingicefieldtrail #mountains #hike #hiking #optoutside #hamboningtheparks #seward #sewardalaska #alaska #visitseward #sewardak
This year is certainly going by quickly! It was just the other day we were cruising through the beautiful Kenai Fjords National Park! And now I’m starting to pack for the next adventure- this time to a warmer climate. This next destination has been on my list for 20+ years. Do you have places you want to go and think you might not make it? Never give up!! One day it will come true. 💫#dream #travel #alaska #makeithappen #explore #lifegoals #kenaifjords #seward #beautifuldestinations #cruise #memories #photography #love
It's hard to imagine how huge this glacier is! More than 90 meters tall and with a 2,3 km wide tongue, but yet, global warming is more real than ever, as this beauty is melting way to fast and is already smaller than it was in the past! #aialikglacier #kenaifjords #kenaifjordsnationalpark #seward #sewardalaska #alaska #alaskacruise #alaskan #glacier #ice #sea #fjord #globalwarming #mountain #cruise #usa #inzarjasbackpack #nature #naturephotography #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #instatravel #instatravelgram #beautifuldestinations #wanderlust #travelgirl #environment #rtw #passionpassport
Hey weekend, I see youuuu 🙌🏼 Hump day is upon us and everything is fine 😬 I have a busy day packing up the house and then tonight I’m off to work an Author event with Markus Zusak (famed author of The Book Thief) for @torquaybooks and @geelonglibraries I’m a TAD excited ! Any readers out there ? • 📍Photo taken on a boat in Seward, Alaska, where the density of wildlife was incredible - in one 2 hour cruise we saw, Bears, Whales, Sea Otters, Seals, Puffins, Bald headed eagles, Mountain goats and half a dozen other sea birds !

Magnificent Aialik Glacier in Kenai Fjord National park in Alaska. Why is ice on the glacier blue? Because the red (long wavelengths) part of white light is absorbed by ice and the blue (short wavelengths) light is transmitted and scattered. The longer the path light travels in ice, the more blue it appears. #aialikglacier #kenaifjords #kenaipeninsula #kenaifjordsnationalpark #seward #alaska #alaskandream #alaskancruise #alaskan #glacier #blue #ice #fjord #sea #cruise #mountain #hiking #usa #inzarjasbackpack #naturephotography #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #inatatravel #instatravelgram #beautifuldestinations #traveling #travelgirl #wanderlust #visitalaska
Aialik Glacier in  Kenai Fjord National park in Alaska, the largest glacier in Aialik Bay - 7 kilometers long and more than 90 meters high. It's amazing to watch it calve, when massive chunks of ice fell off. #aialikglacier #kenaifjords #kenaipeninsula #kenaifjordsnationalpark #seward #alaska #alaskandream #alaskacruise #alaskan #glacier #ice #fjord #sea #cruise #mountain #usa #inzarjasbackpack #naturephotography #travelphotography #travel #travelblogger #instatravel #instagood #instatravelgram #natgeo #beautifuldestinations #traveling #travelgirl #wanderlust #visitalaska
Kenai Peninsula has deeply indented glaciated coastline and its interior icefields. The landscape has been shaped by plate tectonics and the process has lowered the elevation of the Kenai Mountains, gradually pulling glacial features down into the sea, which is at the same time rising. The floors of the fjords are at the moment 600 - 1,000 feet below the present sea level. #natgeo #natgeotravelpic #natgeotravel #nature #alaska #alaskans #alaskatrip #alaskacruise #glacier #travelphotography #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #instagood #kenaifjordsnationalpark #earthpix #canonphotography #landscape #canon #travelersnotebook #bbctravel #visualsoflife #nikon #kenaifjords #seward #alaskatribe #hardingglacier #teamcanon #hollandamerica #mountains #sealife
Honesty time: I let my photos from Alaska just sit on my memory card for almost an entire month before I popped it into my computer to sort through them. It was actually kind of fun, because it felt like the good old days when you had to send away your film to be developed. - I’m not that old (that awkward age where I desperately want to prove my independence and also desperately want to hold onto my youth forever), but I remember taking disposable cameras on trips as a kid, where you can’t view your photos at all! So, not only did finally seeing my photos again bring back those warm fuzzies of adventure, it also reminded me of earlier days, before chunky cameras, thousands of photos, and so many setting options. - While I was traveling, I would look at a beautiful glacier, then immediately look at my photo of said glacier, and think to myself, “that’s the best I can do?” I should be more kind to myself, because I know that no photo will ever stand in the place of real nature, but still. Waiting to evaluate my photos unknowingly gave me the ability to look at them and instead, say “wow! I can’t believe I got to see that in real life!” - Every now and then, I think it’s important to take a step back and give yourself a pat on the back. It is so easy to get caught up in the smaller details of what you haven’t yet accomplished, instead of taking a moment to zoom out and appreciate how far you’ve come. - I’m not the best photographer, the fastest hiker, or the most experienced traveler. When I left college, I put down my camera and pretty much gave up my creative outlets. If you had told me a year and a half ago that I’d soon be in Alaska, hopping on bush planes with a tent and a camera, or kayaking with glaciers and whales, I wouldn’t have believed you. - My photos from this trip, it seems, are a perfect representation for how I felt at the time: always a work in progress, stretching the limits of my comfort zone. They may not be professional, but wow...I can’t believe I got to see all of that in real life!!
Kenai Fjords - Alaska 🗻 🐳 We visited Alaska on early september, the weather was perfect for enjoying nature in the Kenai Peninsula. Seward is a port city that worth a visit, the Exit Glacier Hike is a must do 👍 . #kenaifjords #kenaifjordsnationalpark #sewardalaska #seward #alaska #travelphotography #travel #traveller #landscape #landscapephotography #landscape_lovers #adventure #adventuretime #adventurer #adventures #photoadventures #icefield #outdoors #outdoorliving #outdoorlife #naturephotography #nature #naturelovers #nature
Quicksand Cove in #Aialik is one of my favorite camping locations. It doesn’t have the calving #glacier like #holgate right around the corner, but it more than makes up for it with it’s almost white sand #beach , and the towering #fjords all around it. There’s a lagoon behind it that attracts #salmon and bears, and there is an amazing #waterfall for those who want to #explore a little more. You can’t really get in here with a boat, unless you really need to, but it is easily accessible by #kayak . The lack of a consistent landing place for boats often means your the only party if you choose to #camp for the night. The lack of traffic also makes for some incredible #beachcombing ! We’re happy to share these places with you, if you’d like to visit give us a call or follow the link in our bio! Operating out of the #seward area since 1982, we’ve learned a few things. Let #experience be your guide, and don’t be part of someone else’s learning curve! If you’ve got a large party, please call us soon! Things are already booking up fast! From lodging, to #fishing , to #kayaking through the #kenaifjords , we can help you plan your Seward visit from start to finish. Let us show you our #Alaska !!
“Give someone a fish and feed them for a day. #Teach someone to #fish and creat an obsession for life. Oh, and feed them forever.” This fish fed Captain Chance for a day I think.

Fjord: a long, narrow, deep inlet of the sea between high cliffs, typically formed by submergence of a glaciated valley 🏔🌊 This picture was taken @kenaifjordsnps this summer, and in a few weeks I’ll be checking out the fjords on the other side of the world at Fiordland National Park in NZ!

Winter time has come and its time to start working on projects. This store has been through a lot since we started in 1982. The first store was a piece of dock that was #floating down the bay. My dad thought it would make a good office for a #campground , better than people coming up to our little house on stilts anyways. That store grew year by year. An addition here, a container van with an awning there. Two container vans and now it’s a garage... another addition on the store and now there’s a woodstove... little by little. One year that store and garage burned down. With one of our boats in it. We thought we were at a total loss. Turns out, the neighbors got together, and then what seemed like the whole TOWN got together, and built the store that we have today! All in one day, a barn raising if you will. Theres been some additions to this building as well. Sorta like the story of how Resurrection bay was named maybe? Has anyone heard that tale? Photo credit goes to @bethanybartonphoto

I took this picture from the bow of our #watertaxi the Michael A two summers ago. The tide had left some of the brash ice up on the beach and the colors that day were just incredible. Many times the colors of the ice and glacier on overcast days beat out the #bluebird days by a long shot. Which is fortunate, because the #kenaifjords are located in a temperature #rainforest . This drop off point for our water taxi is #Holgate . If you look closely you can see a park service cabin, and it has an amazing view of the glacier. Many of our guided trips start or stop here also, it’s a great spot to make #camp and listen to the #glacier crackle all night, while watching the calving right from your tent. For more information on this area, give us a call or follow the link in our bio! Cheers everyone! Happy #saturday !!

Walking through Kenai and seeing the markers of where this phenomenal glacier once sat was an enlightening experience. We need to step up to protect, conserve and educate, so that future generations can enjoy this incredible planet. #optoutside . . . . #alaska #kenaifjords #protectourpubliclands #protectourparks #protectourplanet #nps #glacier #travel #nature #naturephotography
