August 11, 2009 – Day 16: Denali to Seward Bay – 336.75 Miles
- Mountain Outside of Talkeetna
I woke up and decided to have a cup of coffee on the patio. My cabin was right on the Nenana River. As I sat enjoying my coffee and the view, I couldn’t help but notice a light rain, known around here as mist that was causing everything around me to become wet. I decided to dress warm and dry, rain gear again.
As I started out from the Denali River cabins, I noticed one or two breaks in the sky. Beautiful blue sky’s lit the horizon as white puffy clouds floated across them. Today was a fantastic day for shooting. I stopped every chance I got. Everything got used today, cameras, lenses, filters, flash. Every time I turned a corner or hit another straight away, I saw another shot waiting to happen.
- Summit Lake
I got a short break from shooting as I passed through Anchorage. As soon as I was south of Anchorage the shooting started again. This was truly beautiful country and I wanted to make sure I captured as much of it as possible. As I crossed the Kenai Peninsula I was getting on and off the bike so often my legs were actually getting sore.
- Tern Lake
I finally pulled into Seward Bay around 4:00pm. I checked into my room at the Breeze Inn and then walked over to the lounge for dinner and drinks. I had a great time hanging with the locals until about 11:45pm and then decided it was time to get some sleep. It was more exploring and shooting tomorrow and then back up to Anchorage and the Millennium Hotel.
