We spent most of Friday exploring the Root Glacier out of Kennecott in Wrangell St Elias National Park. The glacier surface delighted with unexpected features like canyons, and waterfalls, but the most unique experience was to scramble under the edge of the glacier into ice caves where we were underneath surreally blue ice.

On Wednesday, we hiked the rugged Skookum Volcano Trail from the Nabesna Road in Wrangell St Elias National Park. The trail leads to a beautiful high pass through an eroded volcanic system with interesting shapes and colors. The high tundra offered sweeping views and we saw many Dall sheep. At the pass, instead of going back safely, we opted for the unknown and discovery of descending off trail on the other side.

On Monday, it rained solidly upon arrival in Anchorage. I thought day would be total loss, but on the way to Wrangell St Elias, the rain eased enough for shots of the Matanuska Glacier. Ah, seeing a glacier after waking up in San Jose CA... To make up for lack of connectivity during just completed Alaska trip, I will be posting for the next two weeks an image per day from that trip.

Midday was perfect timing for the rainbow at Lower Falls in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, whose bottom is reached by a fun and impressive series of stairs.

Treasured Lands (http://treasuredlandsbook.com) has, at least, finished printing last week at Artron, in Shenzhen, China. This post shares a few videos that should give you an idea of what’s happening in the book printing factory: http://qtl.us/2bxvlct

On Thursday, we drove from the Kendesnii Campground (only one in 13K square-mile Wrangell St Elias National Park) to the Mc Carthy footbridge, enjoying our first day in Alaska with (almost) no rain, and our first view of the Wrangell Mountains, which so far had hidden in the clouds.

On Tuesday, we spent the whole day exploring the mines and ghost towns at the end of the Nabesna Road in Wrangell St Elias National Park. Although those are maybe the most interesting in the North, they are much less known and much more raw than the Kennecott site, and we made incredible discoveries. The day's magical moment had nothing to do with history, though. It happened when we took a hike above the Rambler Mine, and it made it worth it spending most of the entire day in the rain.

It's ‪National Book Lovers Day and one of my hobbies is to collect photography books. Since it's soon ‪NPS 100‬, that's a good time to share a growing Pinterest Board that lists my favorite photography books about the national parks. Have a look, many of the titles can be purchased used for ridiculously low prices:

Story
Tagline
Photographer, author of treasuredlandsbook.com featuring all US National Parks
Introduction
I celebrate the splendor and variety of the natural and human heritage through my photography.  Favoring clarity and truthfulness, I seek to convey the emotions and the sense of connection that I experienced in some of the most beautiful corners of the earth, with the hope that aesthetic appreciation will lift our soul and eventually lead to awareness and respect for our planet and its inhabitants.

I am known for being the first to  photograph each of the 59 US National Parks and also for my website http://www.terragalleria.com with more than 30,000 images from around the world  - one of the most visited of all individual photographer's websites (~ 500,000 monthly visits). Print sales and image licensing from that website are the sole source of income for our family. 

My photographs have been published in more than 30 countries, in every possible media, and in two large photo books under my name: "Beautiful North America" (2007) and "Spectacular Yosemite" (2011). They have been the subject of museum and gallery solo exhibits on both US coasts. I have been profiled in more than a dozen press articles (eg, Boston Globe, National Geographic Explorer, Parks Magazine, Outdoor Photographer), and featured as a character in Ken Burn's film "The National Parks, America's Best Idea" (2009).
