Alaskan Bush

Travis Frank

I can say without a doubt that this phrase is true.  "No picture will ever do Alaska justice."  We said that many times on our visit.  I tried my best to capture the beauty of it all, but came up short.  It was so vast and the view was all around.  Too much for a camera lens.  This particular shot is one of my favorites.  It comes from the Wood River.  As I sit down to write this I'm sure the ice is gone and the water is flowing over this log, but not then.  At that time the ice was just starting to break up and water could be found below our feet.  In fact, that was the water we survived off of during our trip.  Yep, crystal clear mountain water ready for drinking.  It didn't get much better than that.  Nor did the endless view!
