When we found ourselves with some time to spare

on Juneau’s, Mendenhall Glacier

the was no shortage…

…of arms ready, willing and able

to cuddle these husky pups

that were also living on the glacier.

divine

 

I think it may have been divine intervention

that made this image possible.

Day 1 and the peak was covered in clouds

while we visited Denali National Park.

The next day as we were travelling to Fairbanks

our coach driver pulled over so

we could capture shots like this one, of

North America’s highest peak

Alaska’s, Mount Denali. 

 

The Million Dollar View at

Banff Springs Hotel

 

Golden Plains between

Geelong and the Western District.

 

And the views from…

 

…from God’s Window over South Africa’s

Blyde River canyon…

…can only be described as divine.

spectacle

 

North America’s highest peak

Alaska’s, Mount Denali, 

provided a spectacle when it broke

through surrounding clouds

Topping out at 20,310 feet

above sea level it dominates

other mountain peaks in

Denali National Park.

either of the two points at the
most northern and most southern
ends of the earth,
around which the earth turns:

We were only 63 miles inside the Arctic Circle,

however, it was the closest we had ever been

to the North Pole, or either of

the earth’s Polar caps for that matter.

chill

 

All my chill images should have

provided us with a chilling experience…

 

…unfortunately, the opposite was true.

Although it was snowing on

Canada’s Athabasca Glacier in Alberta, 

moving around kept us warm.

 

Even our visit to

Alaska’s Mendenhall Glacier

was undertaken in bright sunshine.

I must confess wearing more than

a cotton shirt on the

glacier visits though.
