Images from Wrangell - St. Elias National Park.

October 3, 2002


 

A park the size of Wrangell - St. Elias
can really be appreciated from the Air.

Scott hired a bush pilot from Wrangell Mountain Air
to fly him above the glaciers and valleys to bring
us images like these.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

The glaciers above make an intricate pattern on the canvas of the earth. The image on the right
looks as though it was taken from a car on a snowy highway rather than from 5000 feet.
The Wrangell - St. Elias National Park is the largest park in the system. There are over
13 million acres and Mt. St. Elias, at over 18,000 feet is our nation's second highest peak.
To learn more about this amazing park, go to the National Parks site.


Back on the ground Scott set up
his easel to bring us artworks like these:
This drawing is of Fireweed Mountain.

Show me a larger version.

Show me a closeup of the drawing.

The painting was made before the sky closed in. We'll have to take Scott's word that 16,237-foot
Mt. Stanford was as beautiful as it appears in his painting!

Show me a larger version.

There are so many great images
from this area, but only a few will appear on the website. We'll have
to find a way to publish more of them somewhere in another form.
