September 17

Well, the trip got short by a few days - mostly because of weather. The last few days we got tired of trying to do things in the rain and kept driving; subsequently we covered more ground than we had planned.

Final tally for miles covered: 8010

(I also had 430 each way between Hailey and Helena.)

Given that we had a full day riding on the bus in Denali (170 miles roundtrip) and a full day on the boat in
Seward (100 miles roundtrip) and lost a few half days in other spots, we legged a lot of miles.


I'll still be making posts over the next few weeks, as there are opportunities to process more images and fill out texts that presently only exist as notes.

FIVE Views of The High One

"Denali" means "The High One" in Athabascan (the tribe native to the region), and it is most appropriate for the highest peak in North America.

                                                                                Well, we woke up Thursday (September 2) to incredibly clear skies, and decided to drive into the Park.
                                                                                               We had resigned ourselves to the fact that we were probably part of the "70%" club; that is, the percentage of visitors to the Park that do not see Denali.
However, eight miles down the road we were rewarded with a vision of it! We could see it all day, up to 100 miles away.....




























A New Direction

Marshall and I went to Alaska together in 2010. The vehicle that we traveled in (Marshall's Sprinter) was so enjoyable that I bought one in late summer 2011, and have begun to make frequent trips around the west.
Right now, Marshall and Bonnie are in Marfa, Texas (on Facebook, check out "A Month in Marfa.")
Next month, we're going to begin and post a website of postcards between artists, dating back to the early 1970s.
I'm probably going to launch a new blog in the next couple of months.....travels around the west, and my work on the archives of photographers L.H. ("Ben") Benschneider, and Robert C. Bishop. Stay tuned.

Cultivated Places, and Places Which are Not

Marbella, Spain, on the coast of the Mediterranean. It seems a bit odd to try and search for "unspoiled" landscapes in this day and age.Still, as any photographer knows, there is great beauty to be experienced in any moment.
