Reflections on Alaska

Hubby Jules wanted to see Denali, and he did.  I'm not sure what I expected but in the end I would have to say the only experience that has come close to this was a trip down the Colorado through the Grand Canyon that I took over 20 years ago.
The peace and serenity we experienced in Kenai Fjords and Denali are very hard to find in today's world.  To see animals in their natural state, seemingly unaware of human presence was a thrill for this nature lover that is hard to match.
You can see more reflections at Weekend Reflections hosted by James at Newtown Area Photo.

You lucked out getting this shot! It's gorgeous. I just went through the Alaska posts catching up and I have to agree that Alaska is a must experience for all nature lovers. It's good to know that there is wilderness in the world, still.
