It is so easy to feel completely dwarfed by a landscape in Alaska, and paddling among the giant icebergs at Nizina Glacier Lake is no exception! Here senior guide Chris passes in front of a huge ‘berg with a perfectly round hole through it. Who can guess how that was formed?! No cheating if you live or work in Alaska! #nizinaglacier #icebergs #kayaking #wrangellstelias #wrangells #alaska #dwarfedbynature
Ever go fly a kite at the park on a breezy afternoon? So do we! Our backdrop is probably the most beautiful in the whole world and the breeze is the catabatic winds caused by cooling air flowing down off the glacier-covered mountains. So come take a stroll in the park with us and don’t forget your kite! #wrangells #wrangellstelias #largestnationalpark #bluebird #kite #glaciers #kennicottglacier #rootglacier #stairwayicefall #letsgoflyakite #katabaticwind #catabaticwinds #walkinthepark #averybigpark #dontforgetthekite

🇺🇸Alaska. Metti una sera a casa di Brad. Chi è Brad? È l’oste pazzo che ci ha ospitato 2 notti al Wrangell St-Elias NP, nel suo bellissimo cottage di fronte al ghiacciaio. Noi abbiamo dormito al piano superiore della casa, in una grande camera da 4 con terrazzo, da cui ci siamo goduti la vista delle montagne, dell’aurora boreale e della miniera fantasma di Kennicott. Abbiamo cucinato pannocchie sul fuoco acceso in giardino e chiacchierato fino a notte fonda. E Brad? Lui fumava spinelli insieme al suo fido aiutante Jamie. Ti ho parlato di loro e della nostra esperienza in questo parco nazionale sul mio blog, trovi i link sulla bio 📝 . . . #alaska #alaskalife #travelalaska #alaskanationalparks #alaskanature #alaskasummer #alaskan #alaskaliving #alaskan_cute #sharingalaska #alaskaliving #alaskawildlife #alaskawilderness #alaskalove #thearticlife #articcircle #mountainscenery #mountainstories #alaskatour #landscape_capture #alaskaroadtrip #folksouls #folklife #wrangellstelias #wrangellalaska #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #igersalaska #glacierpoint #glacierlake #glaciernationalpark #kilimangiarorai

📌Golosità d’Alaska. Cosa si mangia nel più grande stato USA? Tanto pesce, carne (sì, anche di renna), poca verdura e poca frutta, a parte quella di bosco. Soprattutto troppe patatine fritte, che in altri modi le patate non si cucinano mai. Per fortuna che a camminare su e giù per i ghiacciai si buttano giù le calorie in eccesso con facilità. Comunque vuoi mettere la gioia di cogliere i frutti di bosco durante una passeggiata e poi di mangiarli a colazione? Cose che facevo anche da piccola con mio papà, quando andavamo a caccia di more e fragoline 🍓 . . . #alaska #alaskalife #travelalaska #alaskanationalparks #alaskanature #alaskasummer #alaskan_cute #sharingalaska #alaskawildlife #alaskawilderness #alaskalove #thearticlife #articcircle #mountainstories #alaskatour #alaskaroadtrip #folksouls #folklife #wrangellstelias #wrangellalaska #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #igersalaska #lamponi #kilimangiarorai #berry #raspberry #wildraspberry #fruttidibosco #pantone2019 #livingcoral
On this week in 1980, President Carter signed into law the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act which was, and remains to date, the single largest expansion of protected lands in history and more than doubled the size of the National Park System, establishing seven national parks. 7/7 is from the University Range, one of the images of Wrangell St Elias National Park from my book Treasured Lands. #wrangellstelias #nationalpark #alaska
Exploring the most pristine wilderness in this country, car camping with big furry dogs as blanket, hot chocolate saunas, and nothing, but pure freedom and laughter. Best decision we made all week!. . #alaska #alaskaadventures #wrangellstelias #thelastfrontier #choosemountains #optoutside #exploremore #travelot #medtravelers
Another moment where I thought to myself, "I would have traded away my retirement account only for this one day of the trip." At the foot of a cliff over a great glacier, I slept under an unusually large Mars and stars and listened to the living ice creak and crash below me. That night my mattress popped, and I woke up with a porcupine's ass two feet from my face. Luckily it just had a laugh and walked away." - Mike • • • • • #alaska #alaskan #alaskalife #alaskanadventures #alaskalove #alaskansummer #alaskaphotographer #alaskanlife #alaskaphotography #naturealaska #Kennecott #wrangellstelias #kennicott #kennicottguides #wrangell #steliasalpineguides #wrangells #wrangellstelias #usinterior #exploretheglobe #natgeolandscape #landscapecaptures #moody_nature #landscapephoto #landscape_photography #nature_photo #nature_obsession # naturephotos #natureheals #naturefatastically #naturestagram

Mt Atna is an old stratovolcano about 5 miles east of Mt Blackburn. The summit is 13,960 feet (4,325 meters). The glacier seen coming off its southern face is the Nabesna Glacier. Looking at a lot of aerial photos the Nabesna Glacier is like one dangerous crevice hell. I would love to get over there one day but it’s not something I would do by myself. This photo is from the base of Mt Donoho - I was in between lakes 1 and 2. If you go onto google maps you can see three lakes and in between numbers 1 and 2 there’s a place you can attempt to climb Mt Donoho but there was very heavy snow on the approach and it looked as if it could avalanche very soon.. 😳 so I turned around. This photo was taken on my way down. (June 15, 2018) #mtblackburn #wrangellsteliasnp #wrangellstelias #wrangelsteliasnationalpark #nabesnaglacier

At the conclusion of a great day rafting the very veins of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, pilots arrive at the takeout, load gear into planes, and fly satisfied passengers back to the Kennicott Valley. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hashtags! #neverstopexploring #wrangellmountains #dehavilland #cessna #summervacation #wrangellstelias #mccarthy #getoutside #mountainsarecalling #liveyouradventure #whenindoubttravel #choosemountains #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #livealaska #wildernessculture #backcountry #taildragger #rafting #floattrip #steliasalpineguides #rafting #whitewaterrafting #packrafting
I didn’t know I could do this until I did this. My first ever ice climb!! Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Preserve in Alaska—America’s largest National Park, one that left footprints on my heart. Ice axe, crampons, helmet, a pro climber belaying me at the base of a 100-ft wall—all of the safety nets one needs for a basic climb like this one. Nonetheless, it slayed me! Really hard for someone who was always into sports requiring grenades for quads as opposed to stellar upper body strength. Even so, I devoured the experience. I punched my crampons into the wall, pulled myself up with the axe the best I could and I dove into a mental state. Ice climbing is intense—it’s just you on that wall, and an unwavering urge to press on and up...Just. Get. To. The. Top. It was probably one of the most challenging experiences for me along the entire national parks quest—kicking off a 5-day tundra/moraine/glacier-hike/backpack that immediately followed that also kicked my butt (may have even cried somewhere on that one. ;) I learned a lot about my mental and physical strength on this leg is the trip. But all I really remember was Fun. Beauty. Adventure. #Excitement . ⛏ Pic by @jonathan_irish America’s 42nd National Park, @wrangellstenps in Alaska, established by the @nationalparkservice on December 2, 1980. .

Glacier frozen sinkhole from Kluane National Park ice field-- is this a moulin? Or some other type of occurence?

🎿Alaska is littered with spine lines, couloirs and faces that are in the 1,500ft to 4,000ft range. When you start looking for plumb lines that are over 5,000ft tall in vertical relief it can be like finding a needle in hay stack to find a clean line that isn't threatened by seracs or other weird glacial features, along with reasonable conditions over the entire course of the route.

Back to my love of Moose. I spotted this young Moose as I was heading north on the highway leaving Wrangell-St. Elias heading toward Tok. When I first spotted him he was standing in a break of trees along the shores. Truly a beautiful sight. I quickly turned around, went back found a good pull out and grabbed my camera. He was gone. I waited a minute to see if he would reappear and he did! . . . I watched as he eased himself into the river and began to gracefully swim toward the other bank. He then slowly turned back to the original bank, reached the edge heaved himself up out of the water, shook, and disappeared into the forest again. For such huge animals they are extremely graceful. . . . #theroadtorecoverywithbeastiethebj70 #conserventures #overlandexpo #dirttherapy #Alaska #travelbug #explore #exploremore #nomad #outdoortherapy #getoutside #adventure #adventuremore #seemore #domore #wander #roam247 #livebravely #travelbug #solotravel #aloneNOTlonely #canon5dmkii #wildlifephotography #womenwhoexplore #outdoorgal #dirttherapy #findyourpark #alaskanadventure #wrangellstelias
As seen on the 70 minute flightsee. Also featured in this tour: 13 major glaciers, the Nizina Bridge ruins (circa 1920s), Mile High Cliffs, kaleidoscopic rock formations, Skolai valley (a definite passenger favorite), the rugged Seven Sisters, ogives of Gates Glacier, and so much more. It’s no wonder that the 70-minute flightsee route is a WMA staff favorite. 📷@lucas.allen #neverstopexploring #wrangellmountains #dehavilland #cessna #summervacation #wrangellstelias #mccarthy #getoutside #mountainsarecalling #liveyouradventure #whenindoubttravel #choosemountains #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #livealaska #backcountry #taildragger #favorite #flightseeing #aerialphotography
👉”Ti manderei a lavorare in miniera!” L’hai mai detto a qualcuno (o magari solo pensato), o qualcuno l’ha mai detto a te? Ecco, in miniera io ci sono finita sul serio questa estate: si tratta della miniera di rame di Kennicott, nel Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, in Alaska. È una miniera fantasma, chiusa ormai da diversi decenni. È un posto pazzesco, all’interno di un parco naturale meraviglioso e le storie che si incontrano lì, attraverso fotografie, racconti e documentari, sembrano quasi uscite da un altro pianeta. Se ti interessa sapere qualcosa in più su questa insolita località dai un’occhiata al mio blog 😊 . . . #alaska #alaskalife #travelalaska #alaskanationalparks #alaskanature #alaskasummer #alaskan #alaskaliving #alaskan_cute #sharingalaska #alaskaliving #alaskawildlife #alaskawilderness #alaskalove #thearticlife #articcircle #mountainscenery #mountainstories #alaskatour #landscape_capture #alaskaroadtrip #folksouls #folklife #wrangellstelias #wrangellalaska #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #igersalaska #glacierpoint #glacierlake #glaciernationalpark #kilimangiarorai

Little water crossing from Wrangell-St. Elias, water was a bit deeper than it appears in the video. Getting more and more confident on unfamiliar terrain. Coming from drought stricken California and even Colorado to an extent has limited my ability to practice water crossings, so Alaska provided many chances to practice. . . . Listen to that 3B purr! Can’t get enough of this car, and missing Beastie terribly as he has a nice spa month at @landcruisersdirect ! . . . #theroadtorecoverywithbeastiethebj70 #conserventures #overlandexpo #dirttherapy #Alaska #travelbug #explore #exploremore #nomad #outdoortherapy #getoutside #adventure #adventuremore #seemore #domore #wander #roam247 #livebravely #mentalhealth #solotravel #aloneNOTlonely #womenontheroad #findyourtrail #womenwhoexplore #outdoorgal #dirttherapy #findyourpark #alaskanadventure #wrangellstelias

The Gates Glacier, as seen on a flightsee tour in our glorious valley, flaunts its rhythmic “ogives.” This feature doesn’t reveal itself on all glaciers, but the Gates has a particularly massive icefall where the summertime forward march of the ice is “fast” in the center but held back on both sides; this causes waves of ice that arc on their down-valley trek. And like tree-rings, you can count them to see how many years you’re looking at! ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ #neverstopexploring #wrangellmountains #dehavilland #cessna #summervacation #wrangellstelias #mccarthy #getoutside #mountainsarecalling #liveyouradventure #whenindoubttravel #choosemountains #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #livealaska #wildernessculture #backcountry #ogives #taildragger #alaskaadventures 📷 @lucas.allen@wrangellstenps 🏕 @nationalparkservice
