This was the place at the heart of the famed “Klondike” gold rush in 1896, and is still filled with remnants from that rich history. Along the ‘Top of the World Highway’, 200 miles along a mountaintop from Dawson City, Yukon to Tok, Alaska, the artifacts are as plentiful as the amazing auroras. I also spent some time bushwhacking through Tombstone Territorial, and another trip back there is high on my list.
Amazing how much a few months can change a place. This is the same mountain pass from the previous post. Definitely a different feel from when its not encased in 10 feet of snow, and made for a much more enjoyable hiking.
Not sure where the pooch came from, but it was nice to have some company for bit til she trotted off down the mountain.
I found her people but she went off exploring the mountain on her own. I need a mountain dog…
This guy’s got alpine travel figured out. I think when my knee finally goes I’m gonna go this route.
Sketchy crossings, no problem for the slow and steady…
Autumn found in pockets amongst the pine. There were also entire mountainsides which were a blanket of yellow birch and spruce.
I’d been on the road for a week at this point, and hadn’t found a shower in awhile. This is me, debating whether to brave the cold and take a bath in this lovely little alpine lake… Frigid but completely worth it.
Nice little ptarmigan, funny little birds and not in the least bit shy.
I’m going to be playing catchup with the next few posts. Finally got around to working a bunch of images from some wandering around I did last year, I just kept on traveling and was so busy shooting I never found time to work the backlog.

Many forest fires raging through SW Washington

Crop burns and hundred of geese coming in for a landing

Striated land shows just how series the drought has become in Southern California

Just down the other side of the Sierra’s are the strange tufa formations of Mono Lake
A collection of images taken from glaciers all over Iceland. The majority are from the Vatnajökull area (including Breidamerkur, Svinafell and Skaftafell), but I also explored around Myrdals, Snæfells and Eyjafjallajökull.
Definitely some of the most trecherous terrain I’ve ever braved to get the shot, but well worth it! Such surreal experience wandering around these shifting, swirling caves to the heart of the glaciers. Below is a collection from inside 7
From the moss covered lava fields in the Eldhraun area in Iceland, also some from the western peninsula near Breidabólsstadur. A land carpeted in clouds and green pillows, air hisses as it escapes the moss underfoot. This was one of the most fun and fantastic landscapes I’ve ever encountered.
