To start the series off this post is Alaska through my eyes(lens). One thing I learned looking through my folders was that I need to take my camera with me more often, I always forget it when we go hiking or hunting and it's a shame. This are all photos that I had on back up but Im going to dig through my films and see if I can scan some stuff in.
Photo heavy yes, but all of these pictures capture a particular mood. One thing that is consistent about Alaska is the beautiful scenery, it varies so much from region to region, from soaring mountains to the fjords to the ice fields to the tundra and even in the worst of weather, it's still a beautiful and striking country that just fills me with awe. The last pictures are from our fishing trip last summer down to Chitna because hey, what's Alaska without some fishing?
As you can see from the above map, very little of Alaska is actually connected by road. Outside of the road system is hundreds of villages, towns and communities that rely on bush planes, boats or their own ingenuity to get supplies even as basic as lumber and food. Alaska is over 570,373 square miles and sometime it just astounds me how small of an area is actually settled within the state.
Alright, that's it for this week, for next week I'm going to try to work on the history of Alaska and some actual info.
