Big Wild Life in Los Anchorage-the last 24 hours of aurora & moose

2 10 2012

Here’s a few shots from Sunday night’s show at the airport. Had a few red eye flights (is there any other kind in Anchorage?) take off towards the aurora and into my frame. The people on those flights definitely got the best seats in the house!

Aurora and jet. 

Aurora over Los Anchorage. Even managed to capture a jet flying towards the city.

Aurora reflecting in Cook Inlet.

Monday night, after work, I headed up to Powerline Pass to check on any moose activity. I had to take advantage of one of the first days without crazy wind/rain almost a month. I haven’t seen the numbers of moose congregating in Powerline during the rut as I have in years past, so I was happy to find this bull. He was hanging with his harem of 6 females and one spike fork.





Arctic to Indian

16 04 2012

 

Kasey and I have been talking for weeks about doing the Arctic to Indian ski traverse. The weather was perfect Saturday so we headed out early for the 22 mile ski. The snow bridges and trail were both in great shape.

Me & Kasey.

Sunshine turned to cloudy, moody weather as we approached Indian Pass and the Turnagain Arm.

Our first glimpse of the inlet. Kasey at Indian Pass. The snow was nice and soft, cushioning our falls on our waxless skis 🙂 The descent was better than I hoped (and remembered.)

It took us a pretty easy eight hours, stopping for snacks and pics, enjoying the views along the way.

While you were sleeping…last night’s aurora

10 03 2011

The northern lights put on quite a show last night! Lots of dancing, and, at one point the northern lights stretched overhead 180 degrees from over downtown Anchorage to O’malley peak. I took these pics from the Anchorage overlook at Glenn Alps.

Aurora over O’Malley Peak.
