Alaska is one of the least explored territories and by far one the largest true remaining wilderness areas on Earth. From early explorers of the Copper and the Yukon rivers territories (like Henry Allen), gold and copper miners of McCarthy to the modern day explorers it has always attracted the most interesting historical personalities.
During this trip, we explored the south-central part of Alaska also known as Wrangell & St. Elias wilderness, which borders with the Yukon Territory. As we drove towards remote Nabesna area, the view that unfolded in front of us didn’t leave us any choice and we decided to find some quiet area where we could camp for a few hours, while enjoying this spectacular view.
After setting up my camera and positioning it in such a way that the view is not obstructed by the surrounding trees, I waited for another hour until the sun almost completely set. I wanted to get the cyan and purple tones which often appear after the sunset while still having a slight touch of light on the peaks of the mountains.
