Above is the view from Homer, Alaska, looking across the bay in the late afternoon.
As we traveled across the Denali Highway, the 105 mile dirt road through this incredible wilderness, with higher elevation came fresh snow.
This was the view from the main highway, traveling north from Anchorage toward Denali and it’s surrounding mountains. This photo was taken two days before the ones above, before the fresh snow fell.
A gorgeous view of the Kenai Fjords National Park from the cruise out of Seward.
The glacier above feeds the river below along the Denali Highway.
The photo above is from the Anchorage Museum, depicting an Eskimo hunter who would stand perhaps for hours, waiting to spear a passing fish.
Russian influence and heritage lives on in Alaska in the form of many Russian orthodox churches, this one in Anchorage.
Above, some of the many sculptures surrounding the museum.
From the museum, the newspaper announcing Alaska’s acceptance as the 49th state.
Finally, an “art” photo of the Homer “beach”. I took several photos of the array of weathered stones. Here is one of them.
