Alaska travel photography Exit Glacier view

I went on a photography-oriented RV trip with J and his family. We roamed Alaska from Juneau to Fairbanks.
Juneau

Not much here. Lots of bald eagles and some tourist traps for the cruise ships.

Skagway to Fairbanks

Lots of driving, dense forest, mosquitos.

Denali

Denali - mountain and park - were very impressive. Would be a great place to go backpacking.

Anchorage

Anchorage doesn't have much. There's some foul-smelling mud when the tide goes out.
Kenai, Exit Glacier

Kenai was the highlight of the trip. The weather was great and we checked out all the perspectives of a glacier - from the endless ice field above to calving in the bay. J and I ran into a bear on one of the hikes. We survived thanks to talking to it in a calm voice.

I borrowed a macro lens for the northernmost rainforest in (America? Western hemisphere?).
