Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #150: Let’s Get Wild

Guest host Dianne Millard of Rambling Ranger has asked us to get wild for this challenge. On her blog she says “I’m talking about Mother Nature untouched and untrammeled, allowed to get on with her work without human help or hindrance.” Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska meets all of those criteria. It’s the wildest place I’ve ever been.

The landscapes in Denali are breathtaking whether seen from land or from the air.

We were always looking out for wildlife. Except for a couple of moose, most of the wildlife was too far from us to get a good close up picture.

  1. Beautifully wild Beth – loved the moose grazing with the little white flowers especially. Looks like you were much more fortunate with the weather and the mountain vistas. After our first night we never saw it again!

    1. Tina, thank you! We were in the park about 4 days and never saw Mt. Denali from inside the park. We saw it from overlooks on the highway after we left the park. The photo in this post was from our flight seeing trip from Talkeetna.

    1. Pam, a friend of mine has a daughter in Anchorage. She said the Sam thing about car rentals. We had our second Alaska cruise cancelled so we have decided to go somewhere else next year. I still want to return to Alaska one day.

      1. It’s crazy. I don’t know where we’ll go on vacation. Now that we’re ready, it’s too busy! Maybe we’ll go somewhere in Fall. We had wanted to visit Iceland to see the volcano, but there would be too much to deal with at this point in time. Guess we need a local Florida road trip!

    1. Thanks Nancy! I’ve been wanting to return to Alaska ever since we got back and going through those photos made me want to go even more. We were supposed to be on a cruise to Alaska in July but, oh well. It’s not happening.
