Day 211. 10.10.2018 - Took advantage of the beautiful weather and hiked up Deer Mountain. 3.25miles each way with a serious elevation gain to the summit, but a beautiful view of Ketchikan and the gateway to Alaska and the best thing was not another single person for miles around us. It was so nice just to sit at the summit, enjoy the piece and quiet and gaze out over the inside passage.
Final weekend in the studio before packing it all up and heading south to Anchorage for a show @alaskapacific. The name of the show is ONSITE. It comprises 12 (maybe 13?) new works that were all started (some completed) in the field, in four main areas of Alaska: the Wrangells, Eastern Alaska Range, Valdez, and Endicott Arm. Show opens at APU on Friday November 2nd at 5. Photo by @latitude64_photography 🤓
Arctic Getaway B&B - Wiseman, AK
Located 60 miles North of the Arctic Circle in the Brooks Range Mountains. Because of its latitude, lack of light pollution and beautiful scenery this region is one of the best Aurora viewing locations in Alaska.
"After 9 Wet foggy days in the Brook Range this past August the payoff was this mature grizzly bear. The Brooks pack flexed it’s muscles in less than ideal conditions all while keeping my gear dry! The Brooks pack went from day trip mode to bear hauling mode in Nothing flat." Another #FANtasticfriday for this SO Family Member. The Brooks 7400 Backpack getting some face time with its name sake.

Happy Alaska Day my friends and Happy Friday....two amazing days rolled into one! In this shot a beautiful Bald Eagle glides gracefully through the Alaskan sky with the state ferry in the background just outside of Auke Harbor near Juneau. If you follow my work then you already know my favorite state is Alaska. The wildlife, the harsh, untamed landscapes filled with glaciers, cascading waterfalls, kaleidoscopic flora, vast wilderness, snow covered peaks and amazing people make up a state that truly is our Last Frontier. Each year I return here, it’s photographic opportunities are but one reason, from the moment I step off the plane, the crisp Alaskan air filling my lungs, to the moment I leave, a smile fills my face and beautiful images fill my memory cards. Alaska’s as beautiful above water as it is below and if you have never dived this amazing state, well then you should. Have an amazing day my friends and know that when you see me here there’s no other place on earth I’d rather be. It’s Friday, make it an incredible weekend that’s epic and in the service of this amazing planet we all call home. @discovery#alaska#canon#eagles#ocean#wildlife#wildlifephotography#thelastfrontier#natgeo#travel#bbcearth#yesbbcearth#canon_photos#true#friday#birds#outdoors#photography#photographer#gregpiperarts#turnthetide#earth#planetearth#conservation#saveouroceans#blue#wild#photo#wow#love
