One of many strong memories from the weeks in Alaska 2013. Doug the pilot take us to the mountains and glaciers of Alaska Range, a spectacular flight in a tiny aircraft. Felt good with an experienced pilot when time for take off... #alaska #alaskarange #talkeetna #explorealaska

🌕 Celebrating #AlaskaDay (the date it was purchased from Russia in 1867) with a photo that I think captures the feeling of awe and lonesomeness that the far north offers, shot on a frigid night camping down an empty gravel highway in the Alaska Range earlier this month. ⭐Moonlit lake and mountains, the Orion Constellation and the Northern Lights.

Flying so close, it was almost like you could reach out and touch the peaks.
Happy #alaskaday to the state that has always had my soul, and has a good portion of my family.

For you non-AKers, it is when Alaska finally was transferred from Russian hands to the US. Thanks, Russia. Ya girl needed this Wilderness.

“Alaska Range in Red”
A stunning sunset in Alaska near Anchorage— It was one of those moments where the sunset I had a hunch would turn out brilliantly even exceeded my expectations! Shot with my Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD at 100mm, 1/8 sec (on a Gitzo tripod, acratech ballhead), f/8 ISO 100

I’m one lucky man. Win or lose, triumph or heartbreak, it’s all good bc at the end of the day I get to experience the moments and take away valuable lessons. There will always be better places to go and better people to meet and spend time with, I just have to make smarter decisions and spend my time on the better experiences. #Life #LatePost #AlaskaRange #MtMcKinley #FlyNavy #Blessed #Lucky #ILoveThisLife #LessonLearned

Moose heart! Responsible conservation means utilizing every part of the kill, the heart is a very tender muscle, it's delicious almost any way you prepare it and when it comes from moose it feeds the whole camp!

HAPPY ALASKA DAY!  On October 18, 1867, Alaska was formally transferred from being a Russian territory to a United States territory. I would not want to be anywhere else today. This state is absolutely amazing! 🍁

Its hard work and looks a bit rough but floating has to be done, especially on these older guys. Gotta keep the chompers in order to keep weight on em. Hand floats may be old school but they come in handy for mountain medicine. Also, great delt workout! Dental anyone?

🤔 Did you know - at best - you have a 30% chance of catching a glimpse of the top of Denali?  Some times of year, this number is even lower! ☁️ We got lucky! I see you Denali. ☀️ Thank you for reminding us how teeny tiny we are. .

Denali 2018: Days 16-17
Day 16 was much like day 15 in that we enjoyed sunshine at 14 camp and the chance to go ski another lap up toward the West Rib cutoff. We made a 1400’ ascent up to 15,600 feet. From that vantage point you get an excellent view of the fixed lines on the West Buttress route up to the 16k’ ridge. These sunny ski days made our time at 14 camp enjoyable and kept our fitness up. Day 17 was more reading, eating, napping, and trying to keep my phone charged with minimal sunlight. I remember going poop in someone’s abandoned snow cave that day—helpful when it’s blowing and snowing sideways! #climbdenali #denalinps #denaliclimb #denali #westbuttress #mountainclimbing #expedition #mckinley #mountaineering #climbhigh #nps #sevensummits #glaciertravel #alaskarange #mountainlife #skitouring #skidenali #backcountryskiing #skimountaineering #snowcamping #offpiste #snowcave #denaliwestrib

Denali 2018: Days 14-15
Day 14 was all about digging out the tent from falling snow and searching for things to read and listen to in order to preserve sanity. We also scored some fantastic foods from climbers heading back down to base camp. Day 15 donned clearer skies and the chance to get out, move around and continue to acclimatize a bit. We turned back from our push up to 17k camp on day 13 in the face of a snow storm... And little did we know down at 14k camp that days 14 and 15 were perfectly clear, calm and warm up at 17,000’ and above. In fact, we found out later that people were summiting in “light” jackets those days. This was the summit window that we missed. Another opportunity would not come for us on this trip. We just didn’t recognize the opportunity and made super conservative decisions. Lesson(s) learned, and fingers and toes were not risked. #climbdenali #denalinps #denaliclimb #denali #westbuttress #mountainclimbing #expedition #mckinley #mountaineering #climbhigh #nps #sevensummits #glaciertravel #alaskarange #mountainlife #skitouring #skidenali #backcountryskiing #skimountaineering #snowcamping

Just a little throwback. This photo was taken from the Ruth Glacier right after a huge chunk calved off the top of Mt. Dickey.

My camera was snugly snapped into my down bootie that was Macgyvered around my neck to protect it from -35F temps. I didn’t get it out in time to capture the avalanche.... but look at that afterglow! Powerful. Beautiful. Nature.

I never posted any pictures on here  from my sheep hunting trip this past August and a friend suggested I share them, so here are a few good ones. It was such an unforgettable trip and even though we didnt kill anything, it was so worth all the time and effort. Definitely the most physically demanding hunt either of us have ever been on but still worth it.  #ihunt #huntalaska #getoutandhunt #alaskarange #dallsheephunting #kuiu #sitkagear

Enjoy the view | The 135-mile Denali Highway is one of Alaska’s best kept secrets. Bike, hike or drive the scenic byway with mountains and glaciers of the Alaska Range and rolling tundra as a backdrop.

Denali 2018: Day 13
We were up by 6am breaking down the camp, then on the trail by 8:45am. No one had been up toward the headwall for about 3 days, so we had to break trail—not an easy feat, especially on the headwall itself. In fact, the footing was so poor and the fixed lines were so snowed under that the teeth on my ascender got all caked up with ice and snow—enough that it slid back at me on the way up. It’s hard to feel comfortable on the headwall when you can’t trust your feet or your ascender. Anyway, by the time we made it up to the 16 ridge we were absolutely exhausted. Even after a rest we didn’t make it more than 5 minutes up the ridge before we both agreed to go back to 14 camp to rest. A snow storm was blowing in from the northwest, and we didn’t want anything to do with that. Little did we know this would be the last time we made it to the 16 ridge on this trip. #climbdenali #denalinps #denaliclimb #denali #westbuttress #mountainclimbing #expedition #mckinley #mountaineering #climbhigh #nps #sevensummits #glaciertravel #alaskarange #mountainlife #skitouring #skidenali #backcountryskiing #skimountaineering #snowcamping #offpiste
