Adventures of a wildlife photographer

August 24, 2012

This is part nine of my 2011 Alaskan wilderness photographic adventure. We have traveled from Fairbanks, through Denali National Park, down the Alaskan railroad to Anchorage, stopping briefly for an overnight stop to catch my breath, and then heading southeast towards the village of Seward.  South of Anchorage we stopped in the village of Girdwood. This was to be our one luxury stop of our trip. Our stay for a day and a half would be at the beautiful Aleyska resort. With luxury rooms, indoor pool and access to the chairlifts, the stay was nice reprieve from the fast pace that we were used to.
