So I found a great tree stump to perch my Nikon and get this final Alaskan selfie.
I know fluro hasn’t been fashionable since the 90’s however being a fashion victim beats being a gunshot victim at the hands of some drunk deer hunter in the wilderness!
I normally don’t do selfies however I was so damn proud of this fire that I wanted to capture my perpetual grin beside it.
Because look around: How much dry wood or kindling do you see? And I was wet, freezing and tired. My boots were soaked and starting to freeze solid.
I was alone and needed a fire badly so I could get my core temp back up. So I scrounged around under deadfalls where a few twigs had been sheltered and managed to get this little baby going. Two hours later I had a mini inferno that warmed my body and my soul and made my last night in Alaska perfect!
This is where I saw a lone wolf padding up beside the river and I was so awestruck I stared and then fumbled for my camera but I was too late to snap it.
This is a section of Alaska along the Crows Pass hike. A stunning part of the world.
Alaska was an awesome journey and with Winter closing in it was time to bug out.
But I will be back!
Thanks for reading 🙂
