The theme of #FriFotos this week is “WILD,” and I can’t think of any destination I’ve been to so far that better embodies this the word than Alaska.
Here, then, are some of my best photos from wild Alaska:
This first batch comes from the capital city of Juneau. For the best wild views here, head up the Mount Roberts Tramway, or catch a ride out to the Mendenhall Glacier. It was here 2 summers ago that I saw my very first glacier up-close.
The next group comes from in and around Skagway, a little former-mining-town-turned-tourist-mecca. Here, find the best wild views by venturing out of town a bit. This could include renting a car and driving into the nearby mountains, or riding the White Pass and Yukon Route railway along the old gold mining route.
Lastly, here are some wild and beautiful photos from Tracy Arm Fjord in Alaska’s Inside Passage. Sailing through this passage in June was both cold and calm, but well worth getting up at 6 a.m. for.
These wild photos have convinced me that I definitely need to spend some more time in Alaska.
Which “wild” photo is your favorite?
