The very narrow window of time between my last two trips did not afford the chance to share many pictures from my trip to Katmai. I’ve had a moment to look at a few that I’ll share in the next few posts just to give a little break from snow and polar bear bears.
This image epitomizes to me why I like being in nature. One dramatic view can fill the soul with immeasurable pleasure. It is this particular scene alone that is enough to lure me back to Katmai National Park. Take water, mountains, clouds, color and throw in some drama and the scene is alive with emotion. Alaska is so loaded with scenes like this that I’d feel slightly lost not being able to partake of their beauty. They certainly are not all tied to sunrise and sunset, but many of them are. It is a reward for the early riser. In this picture, a little bit of steam rises from the lake as the cool air and warmer water makes that mystic moment common to an autumn morning.
