Bits:
Departing Bangkok – after I completed my record long haul door-to-door ever –  38 hours and 28 minutes, 2 hours sleep and no shower – I arrive in Anchorage, Alaska, United States.

Turnagain Arm off the Cook Inlet, Alaska

I’m staying in Eagle River and Girdwood to photograph a wedding (a friend of mine from US and Australia who now works as a dentist in Bethel, Alaska) .

The drive around the locality includes great views along Turnagain Arm, part of Cook Inlet (Above).  A popular fishing spot and good location for a marriage proposal (my guess).

A view from the North Face Trail that climbs 100m up from the Alyeska Resort Hotel to the high country with glacial views as below. If you climb up (as I did) you are offered a free ride down on the cable car (above). No bears or moose seen yet.

One of many glacial views  in the area.
