"Lake Clark National Park and Preserve is a land of stunning beauty. Volcanoes steam, salmon run, bears forage, and craggy mountains reflect in shimmering turquoise lakes. Here, too, local people and culture still depend on the land and water. Venture into the park to become part of the wilderness."

We didn’t see any fireworks on the 4th of July, but waking up to this sky that morning was a pretty good alternative 😍. After setting up my timelapse, I wandered around this small tarn to take an iPhone photo to show Sonja. I quickly squeaked back to the tent in my dew covered crocs, woke up a groggy @thenationalparksgirl, and then she bolted out of her sleeping bag to capture the same thing. There’s nothing quite like a beautiful sunrise to start the day and get the blood flowing — even if it happens at 4:14am like this one.
Last night’s sunset was a bittersweet moment, as it marked the end of my last full day in Lake Clark National Park. My experiences here, for which I am enormously grateful, have forever changed me. Saying goodbye to the friends I’ve made along the way was more difficult than I would have liked, and I look forward to the possibility of returning in the future. . #lakeclarknationalpark#alaska
This was my favorite part of the mountain range we looked at the whole trip. The ribbons of rust orange contrasted brilliantly with the leftover snow, made even better when the clouds appeared to dapple shadows here and there.
Trying out new-ish camera for the first time while doing a couple runs to Koksetna Lodge to pick people up this morning. The built in image stabilization must work because my flying is not this smooth.
One of the things I love about hiking is that it forces me to slow down and appreciate my surroundings. Instead of being wrapped up in endless deadlines, answering emails, or worrying about trivial things I am given the opportunity to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of society and simply appreciate the details around me and moments as they unfold. ✨ These are some of my favorite details and moments from Alaska: 1. The moon setting during blue hour on our final night. 2. The sun illuminating the wildflower petals. 3. A creek shining in a shadowy valley at ...
“And further and further my heart moves away from the shore. Whatever it looks like, whatever may come, I am Yours. Then You crash over me and I've lost control, but I'm free. I'm going under; I'm in over my head. And You crash over me, I'm where You want me to be. I'm going under, I'm in over my head. Whether I sink, whether I swim, oh, it makes no difference when I'm beautifully in over my head.” - @bethelmusic & @jennjohnson20, In Over My Head (Crash Over Me) #lifetheakedition
Two days in Alaska visiting two national parks and I’m already hoarding 2500+ pictures. I’ve gotten so good at the point & shoot, I barely look at my screen to frame the shot 😂 Just boarded the Alaska Railroad heading to my next park. Any guesses as to where? 🚂 #lakeclarknationalpark#windowview
Alaska wonderful. ••••• Thanks to our NP Geek Ambassador Linda @thebucketlisttraveler for sharing the adventure this week from Alaska. You go girl!! ——-- National park number 49 and I’m already saving up for a return visit 🤣 Great air time flying with folk from @lake_clark_air and @the_farm_lodge_ak #lakeclarknationalpark#lakeclarknps ——-
Trying to cherish these moments as best I can... I just grabbed a rod and pretended to be fishing even though I sat there the whole time and took pictures because the view is unbelievable. So are these two precious souls. Monica and Rachel are the SWEETEST roommates (and way better than the other Monica and Rachel tbh). ❤️❤️
After discovering that the small lake and river we planned to camp at on Day 3 was bone dry (climate change + 1953 survey map are the culprits), we decided to push on towards Turquoise Lake. As the destination drew closer, the views got better and better, so it should come as no surprise we took a break here. (I basically threw my backpack down to set up this timelapse as fast as possible.) The clouds showed up, the lake lived up to its name, and the shadows danced across the whole scene so wonderfully I could have stayed for ...
Really stoked to be heading to @lakeclarknps to document the stories of traditional Dena'ina Athabaskan place names in the area alongside local community members for a second year in a row. Lake Clark / Nondalton has become one of my favorite places in Alaska to visit, with some of the friendliest and most capable people and most beautiful landscapes of anywhere I've ever been. Really looking forward to sharing what I capture with all of you on my return. Catch ya on the flip side! 🛩 @lakeandpenair @alaskanps #lakeclarkplacenames#qizjehvena

May we all set down a bit of self-judgement. May we free ourselves from our own expectations. May we see our attachments and aversions as that which blinds us to the truth of unity. May we awaken, well rested, as if from a night of blissful deep sleep. . . . . . #blissbody#satsang
First, roll your fish in the sand for a little batter. Then, rub your snout in it for a little seasoning. Photographed during my Brown bear photo workshop in 2018. ——— • • #wildlife#wildlifeplanet @usinterior @goparks @alaska.geographic @alaskaair @alaskamagazine
Nothing like a good stretch on a summer afternoon. Join me next year in Alaska to capture your own unique moments with brown bears. https://www.dawnwilsonphotography.com/2020-brown-bear-workshop ——— • • #brownbear#wildlife @alaska.geographic @alaskamagazine @alaskanps @usinterior @goparks
Take heart. Breathe deep. There is so much more to come. You have known unimaginable heartbreak, and you have also known the morning sun. A beautiful reminder of new beginnings that are still available to you. No matter the sleepless nights. No matter what you have been through. - MHN
Photo by @daisygilardini | When photographing wildlife it’s essential to focus on your subject all the time, without any distractions. Sometimes, when bears are sleeping, they can sleep for long hours, and you might be tempted to nap as well. In the past I’ve missed some great opportunities, simply because I was distracted. I learned that when things happen around bears, they often happen suddenly and very quickly. One hot summer day, this mama bear decided to have a long nap in a fresh pond in the middle of a pasture. Her baby did not fancy the cold ...
