2008 Trips, and thanks folks!

Hiker in Icy Bay, looking at Mt. St. Elias, sunset, Wrangell - St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

Someone told me summer’s been and gone already for 2008 here in Alaska. I missed it, somehow, apparently. What a crazy year it was, weather-wise. Thunderstorms and lightning in the arctic, rain and clouds, snow and clouds, sunshine, wind, cool weather, hot weather, a mixed bag for sure. What was super, super appreciated, was the great spirits everyone brought along on the trips this summer – I couldn’t be more appreciative, and the groups couldn’t have better. Thanks.

I’ll try to have a slideshow up the website with a little review of the summer trips, but I’m heading back over to Wrangell – St. Elias to photograph the remaining fall colors, and then come back to Anchorage early October to get website updates, etc, done. So look for a slideshow on the home page in October. Until then, thanks SO much to everyone who came out this year, for all the good times, the great company, and some killer hiking trips. Thank you.

This photo is me, staring in awe at Mt St. Elias, from Icy Bay, in mid-June. What a mountain!

      Love reading about your adventures and the incredible pictures Carl. I just got back from a rainy foggy week in Anchorage and must trust the pictures to persuade that there really are mountains nearby.

      Hey Steve,

      Thanks so much – glad you enjoy the posts.

      I hear you about the fog here – it’s still cloudy and rainy outside. 🙂
