Ice cave at Clear
I spent my first seven years in Alaska trying to find and photograph the essence of the Alaska wilderness. I flew, hiked, climbed and skied across the state; the more remote the better. I found places few had been, places that were rugged and magnificent. But as the economy sank and my family grew, I realized I needed to focus on a project close to home. The obvious choice was the local state park. So I decided to focus my energy on exploring and photographing Chugach State Park for one year, September through September.
