Although the top of Denali wasn’t visible for long I still managed to take some unique shots. Pretty tall mountain. Actually it’s taller than Mt. Everest. The highest mountain is determined by the measurement of its highest point above sea level to its summit and the tallest mountain is measured buy its base to summit. So with that Denali is taller than Mt. Everest at 18,000 feet fm the base which a greater vertical rise than Mt. Everest at 12,000 feet. Pretty crazy.
Ran into this beautiful girl. She was laying out in the tundra and then she got up and started to walk right towards me. I figured she’d avoid me and all the other tourists watching her but she kept on getting closer and closer. I didn’t want to move and spook her and all of a sudden everyone was quite, holding their breath because she ran right up next to me, no more than three feet away. She stoped and sniffed the air in my direction then headed across the road back into the brush.
Just got back fm Denali NP last night and wow. It was my first time past mile 30 and it was not what I expected. I was blown away at the valleys we drove through and all the wildlife we saw. We spent a little over 8 hours behind the park gates driving around and snapping way to many pictures but with a place like this it’s hard to resist.
So many good and exciting things coming up in the future for us. I can’t wait to see where we’ll be this time next year because so much has changed unexpectedly but in a good way since I met you. You’re my best friend, my hiking buddy, my love. Happy 10 months babe. @jordynbailey_
Around this time last year @g_rohde_907@philokalia_ and I woke up early to catch sunrise. I’ll always remember this day because @philokalia_ got stuck about hip deep in mud and @g_rohde_907 and I are trying to pull this huge man out of the mud. We were all covered in silty mud and it was a mess in @philokalia_ truck. Definitely a memorable day.
The fall colors are in full swing at Matanuska Glacier. We hiked up to this spot in hopes it would be clear to shoot the northern lights but unfortunately when we got to the top smoke and clouds already rolled in. Everything ended up working out, we made it to another spot where we enjoyed an amazing light show that night.
