Sure looks like a beautiful Autumn day, however this was taken on August 28th. As Fall is my favorite season it was a nice year as I had 3 great months of colorful fall foliage. Looking forward to this year's bounty.

The Matanuska Glacier is one of Alaska's most spectacular glaciers. It is also one of the oldest. It looms 13,000 feet high in the Chugach Mountains. It is 27 miles long, stretches four miles across and is easily seen from the Glenn Highway.

Seen here is the toe of this huge glacier. It is the largest glacier accessible by car in the United States.

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!

Peaks have always been my magnet, my prime objective. I've been blessed to see and experience many iconic peaks with their beautiful ecosystems around them. The main target of my 2015 trip to the Last Frontier was to see the highest peak on the continent. For 6 days in the park it was shrouded in clouds, which isn't unusual as it creates it's own weather system. Fortunately I was finally rewarded with several days of it standing tall and magnificent, like this. I was awestruck.

"The Koyukon Athabaskans and other local tribes who inhabit the area around the mountain have for centuries referred to the peak as Dinale or Denali. The name is based on a Koyukon word for "high" or "tall." That it is!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

A stream outlet in Denali with varied angles, textures and mixtures of greens and earthtones caught my fancy.

Thanks for taking a look!

Alaska's Richardson highway passes thru this impressive canyon north of Valdez. A spectacular drive past major glaciers and stunning views. Shown here with 2 beautiful waterfalls: Horsetail (328 feet) and Bridal Veil (400 feet), flowing into the Lowe River.

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments, faves and suggestions!

Lowell Creek flows into Resurrection Bay. Seward AK is a short distance to the left. Hard to pick a favorite city in Alaska but Seward and the area sure impressed me.

Friday's here! Enjoy a wonderful Friday and weekend!
