#Alaska 🇺🇸 It is so hard to choose what was my favourite adventure in Alaska, but surely the #scenicflight over the #wrangellstelias #nationalpark , the largest in the States (same size as #Switzerland !) ranks very high! A must do if you head there! #intothewild
When the lenticular clouds start to form near the peaks it’s usually windy up high, moderately to violently turbulent near the hills, and not nearly as serene as a blue sky suggests. Not a comfortable day for exploring by air, but it sure was pretty looking south into the St. Elias range from near the US-Yukon border.
Near Andrus Peak in late June in Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, the nation’s largest and six times the size of Yellowstone. It was cold and we were in the clouds that night, but I wonder what it looks like tonight! #onlyinalaska #alaskaphotographer #alaska #wrangellstelias #wrangellsteliasnationalpark #mccarthyalaska #wrangellmountainair #pyramidpeak #rexglacier #andruspeak @wsiepiela

McCarthy Alaska is such a pretty little town. With only about 45 full time residents, part time workers and visitors swell this town by the hundreds in the summer to take in the epic glaciers (all around), rivers, mountains, colors, historical mines, and more. Good food, fun bars, great camping, and epics hikes complete this one of my favorite towns in Alaska. My main account is @jeltown where you can see my most recent stuff. . . . . . . . . . . . . #mccarthy #mccarthyalaska #stelias #wrangellstelias #alaskagrown #alaskan #thelastfrontier #wildernessculture #exploretocreate #passionpassport #folkgood #welivetoexplore #theglobewanderer #nationalpark #moodygrams #simplyadventure #awesomeearth #earthofficial #earthfocus #heatercentral #watchthisinstagood #neverstopexploring #beautifuldestinations #awesome_earthpix #openmyworld

For those of you who wonder about winter in the Wrangells... here are pictures of the Nizina Canyon and Chitina River at our day trip take-out from this week. Since 90% or more of the water in our rivers comes from glacial melt, as the temperatures drop the ice stops melting and the rivers pretty much disappear. What’s left freezes over and by January all that’s left is a corridor of snow-covered ice winding through the landscape. Welcome to winter!

📌January 3rd - Alaska Admission Day! On January 3, 1959, Alaska became the 49th [and largest] state in the U.S. Alaska is home to 24 national parks, 1 national heritage area, 49 national historic landmarks, 16 natural national landmarks, and 1 World Heritage Site! There are 13 Wild and Scenic Rivers managed by the National Park Service. Wrangell St Elias National Park and Preserve is the largest national park in the United States, equal to 6 Yellowstone’s. This photo is taken by Eric Rolph with a double rainbow through the park.

This cold weather in South Carolina is taking us back to our hike at Root Glacier at Wrangell St. Elias last summer. #project59nps #alaska #rootglacier #nationalparkservice #everykidinapark #wrangellstelias @wrangellstenps @nationalparkservice @nationalparktrust
Heading upriver toward the Bremner Glacier was like flying through a painting. #wrangellstelias
Did I ever tell you about the time I spent New Years at a lodge in the Wrangell-St.Elias National Park? #newyears #alaska #nationalpark #naturepreserve #beautiful #sunset #wrangellstelias

No trip to the Wrangells is complete without a glacier adventure, and while you’re wandering the ice keep your eye out for these fascinating “table rocks”. While a tiny pebble will collect heat from the sun and melt itself into a hole in the ice, a big enough rock will insulate the ice underneath and prevent melting, eventually building itself up on a pedestal. Cool! #glaciers #rocks #tablerock #glacierhiking #geology #wrangells #wrangellstelias #rootglacier #geologyinaction #rocksarecool
Halfway between Chitina and Cordova a small hidden channel splits off from an already small braid of the mighty Copper River. At the right water level, with guides that know each and every turn, you can silently slip into what we call the “jungle channel” and for an hour feel that you’re on a lush green safari on a small stream in a totally different part of the world. Eagles and other birds call from the trees, alder branches gently graze the calmly flowing water, and you may get lucky enough to see something like this mama grizzly and yearling cubs wandering along the bank in search of salmon. Join us for this sort of magical experience in 2018! #raftalaska #copperriver #wilderness #grizzly #sowandcubs #wrangellstelias #chugach #chugachnationalforest #optoutside #wildlife #2018adventures

Happy Birthday Alaska! There is so much to love about the 49th state, with its snowy peaks, frigid glacial melt, all the greenest greens, trees for days and other amazing flora and fauna, the incredible midnight sun, some of the loveliest, most genuine people you’ll meet, and the promise of adventure. I am forever counting the days til I return to this wild place 💙

Throwback... took this one earlier this summer, when I still shot in JPEG on my old Nikon. I was crossing my fingers that the swan on the left would raise its head slightly, so that I could capture that symbolic swan heart image. However, I learned that nature doesn’t care about what I want, and so the swans went their separate ways. I remember @smith_dimitri saying something like, “these may be the best photos of swans we ever get”. So far he is correct. . . . . . . . . . . . #throwbackfriday #throwback #swans #swanlake #wrangellstelias #wrangellalaska #anchorage #valdez #alaska #alaskaphotographer #explorealaska #naturalalaska #discoveralaska #forceofnature #adventureseekers #bestofalaska #greatstuff #lostfam #greatnorthcollective #modernoutdoorsmen #nrthwst #minimalexperience #lookslikefilm #travelalaska #sharingalaska #upperleftusa #middleofnowhere #offthebeatenpath #wayfarecollective @natural_alaska @discoveralaska @alaskacollective @alaskaphotoreel @explorealaska
Didn’t the instructions say something about not flying your kite in places where you could fall to your death? Luckily for @buildergrrl there wasn’t any wind on the plateau above Long Glacier that day, so we took a hike instead.
I’ll send a free copy of my 2018 calendar to the first person who can name this spot in the #wrangells 😊!
Last August we were right here, thank you Alaska for giving so much to us after being there. @meatzawagon we had food from your Van and it was delicious. Merry Christmas from 🇮🇹. #alaska #wrangellstelias #mccarthy #mountains #snow #winter #spruce #travelling #roadtrip #lastfrontier #hiking #bonanza #kennecott #instatravel #travelgram #christmas #christmaseve #teaveling

The low light of Alaska's winter solstice is summed up in one word: *enchanting*. Inhabitants of the far north can't help but be swayed by the exaggerated solar swings throughout the year, and the season of long nights has so many charms...this mountain bathed in lazy lingering alpenglow dominates the northern horizon at my home. My soul swells in celebration of the cosmic recipe that creates these moments, and this time of year they literally last for hours - mountain magic suspended in motion. Happy Solstice everybody. In the year ahead may we all bring more Light into our lives. 🗻 #wintersolstice #enchanting
