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.

Adventures of a wildlife photographer "Hidden Alaska"-Part 8

July 24, 2012

When I last wrote I was out to sea, at the end of Resurrection Bay, south of Seward, Alaska. We had a wildlife filled, beautiful scenic boat ride from Fox Island southward towards the Kenai Fjords. Seeing Killer Whales, Sea Lions, Harbor Seals and a vast variety of birdlife was, to this photographer, incredible. It was becoming quite clear to me that this was really the photographic adventure of a lifetime. Not only was I seeing a vast amount of wildlife and scenery, but we were definitely off the beaten path, so to speak.

Area athletes excel in Special Olympics

June 11, 2012

After diagnosing Terika Schleicher with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, doctors believed she would never be able to walk because the neurological condition would negatively affect both of Schleicher’s arms and legs.
The doctors’ worries didn’t stop there.
Because of a stroke before her birth, a portion of Schleicher’s brain wasn’t able to form correctly. Instead, an arachnoid cyst grew to take the place of the damaged tissue. Doctors weren’t sure if she would ever be able to talk or attend a regular school.
