Peeking thru the trees at Mt. Denali shortly after dawn.

"There is a distinction between measuring "highest" and "tallest." The highest mountain is determined by measuring a mountain's highest point above sea level. The tallest mountain is measured from base to summit. Using that measurement, Denali is taller than Mount Everest. Denali rises about 18,000 feet (5,500 meters) from its base, which is a greater vertical rise than Everest’s 12,000-foot rise (3,700 meters) from its base at 17,000 feet (5,200 meters)." Wikipedia

Have a wonderful week!

Haven't tried a bald eagle in monotones. Thought this particular shot worked well.
Liked the pose and light.

Hope your weekend is off to a great start!

The fog finally cleared on Yellowstone's Dunraven Pass providing a nice southeast view across the fog blanket still covering the Grand Canyon.

Dunraven Pass is the highest Pass in the Park, at almost 8900 feet. Never know what kind of weather you'll experience here.

Was near here as well when I took yesterday's rainbow shot.

A few other shots from around the Pass and Mt. Washburn in comments.

Thanks for taking a look!

A stormy day at this special wildlife preserve. Stormy + Alaska = most days. Provides nice drama and keeps the air fresh and clean.

"Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge is a dynamic landscape made up of forests, wetlands, tundra, lakes, mountains and glacial rivers bounded by the snowy peaks of the Alaska Range. This upper Tanana River valley has been called the "Tetlin Passage," because it serves as a major migratory route for birds. 116 species of birds breed on Tetlin during the short summer, when long days and warm temperatures accelerate the growth of plants, insects and other invertebrates, providing a ready source of rich foods for nesting birds." Wikipedia

Besides all the birds the refuge is home to all the wildlife one would expect to find in Alaska (except musk ox). On this day though the birds and critters were hunkered down to weather the storm.

Your visits, comments, faves and suggestions are always appreciated.

Continuing with the splendor that I experienced when I stepped away from the camper (shown in comments) on this glorious morning.

Conveniently another early riser quietly paddled slowly by in his red canoe in the rain as the loons, grebes and other songbirds serenaded us with their soothing morning song. It just doesn't get much better than this.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and for any comments and faves. Always appreciated!
