Sunset over Kennicott River

Sunset over Kennicott River, Wrangell-St. Elias, winter, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

A sunset over the Kennicott River. This photo was taken probably  less than 100 yards from the shaq. The day had been cloudy and not too promising, and as I was returning from a ski down the river, the clouds started to break up. So I motored on home, grabbed my camera and headed back over to this spot for the photo.

This is right at the edge of the boreal forest and open riverbed, making a nice blend for the view.

The mountains to the south are the eastern end of the Chugach Mountains.

Winter is simply another world in the park – way too cool.
