Description

Western Chichagof Island in Alaska is one of the most dramatic and textured landscapes I've ever experienced. This shot required a more-than-full-day hike. But first, we had to land the small lake in a float plane and set up basecamp. The route up was fairly straightforward, up the sub-alpine ridges full of purple lupine. The trip down, through karst limestone that was eroded like razor-sharp swiss cheese, took over three times longer than the trip up. By the time we got back to camp at 11:30pm, were very thankful for the bright, Alaskan summer nights.
