Mount Hunter and SE Fork Kahiltna Glacier Basecamp - (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelI was fortunate to be able to fly with Kantinsha Air Taxi around Denali on a crisp and clear day, and take a few more shots for my book project ‘Above Denali’. This aerial view shows Mount Hunter and the basecamp for most Denali (Mount McKinley) expeditions on the Southeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier.

Midnight Sun Over Denali (Mount McKinley)

 

Midnight Sun on Mount McKinley Denali National Park from Wonder Lake - (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelI took this picture at 12:10 AM yesterday from Wonder Lake  just as the last sun rays were illuminating Denali (Mount McKinley) and its neighboring peaks in the Alaska Range. Florian, Karsten and I rode our bikes from Kantishna to take in this magical evening and to see the midnight sun. Needless to say that I love the long summer days in Alaska. It just seems that the flood of light is endless.

Yanert Valley & Alaska Range

Yanert Valley Aerial - (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelI took this shot while flying above the Yanert Valley near Denali National Park. Once on the ground, I saw several moose cows with their newborn calves while hiking near the ponds in the foreground. It’s awesome to be back in my old stomping grounds!

Denali Heli Hiking Adventure

Heli-Hiking Adventure Denali National Park - (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelIt’s been great to be back in the Denali National Park area. This past weekend,  I was fortunate to join my friend and former neighbor Jeffrey Ottmers, owner of Denali Backcountry Guides, on of one of the heli-hiking adventures he guides near the boundary of Denali National Park. Jeff is a world-class naturalist who loves to share his passion for the tundra, and it was wonderful to learn more about the ecology of this amazing place through him.
