Friday file: Open Season On Alaska

The Alaska cruise season is underway, so many of you are perhaps packing your bags and your cameras for the adventure. And Alaska is an adventure, one that is almost universally endorsed as a bucket-list item. This week’s essay of photos from our archive will give you an idea of some of the things you can anticipate seeing…

Mt. McKinley

The closest we’ll ever be to the top of Mount McKinley, North America’s highest point.

Alaska-bear

Grizzlies are grizzlies, whether in the wild or at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

Glaciers

There are many things that are “must-sees” — and calving glaciers is one of them.

Ketchikan

Wildlife is never a guarantee in Alaska, and often it seemingly pops out of nowhere.

Denali

If your cruise is in September, these are the kinds of colors in Denali National Park.

Ketchikan-crabs

Shore excursions to find crabs, even on a rainy day, can produce spectacular photos.

Chugach National Park

Chugach, the “other” national park, is near Anchorage and well worth seeing.
