Some of the Best Landscape Photo's I've Taken;

Many people wish to come to Alaska to fish and while the rivers and creeks can offer some memorable days the weather may not be corporative with your trip for seeing the sights along the way. I'm here 365, 24/7 and so I get some opertunities to take it in and through places like Spey Pages; to share some of it.

I sorts figured you guys would like those, I try to take a few throughout the year and were it not for places such as this to showcase some they would go to waste.

Thanks Spey Pages

Terrific! Keep it coming, Ard. I like the shot of the mountain range through the windows.

I'm guessing those are Aspen trees in that shot with the creeping glacier in the back ground by far for me my most favorite!

Hello Tom,

The trees are birch, I am far from expert of all things flora & fauna here but I know that the forests around me are predominately birch, spruce and cottonwood. Along the rivers and creeks the alder and willow occupy the waters edge and the cottonwoods are more plentiful there also. It took me a life time to learn what I knew about North central Pennsylvania and I'm not sure I'll live long enough to know my p's & Q's here although I do work at it and find myself frequently looking things up.

Kill the hens you kill the river.
