At a Glance

In the Alaskan Interior, grizzly bear walk lowland rivers, caribou roam the alpine tundra, Dall sheep cling to treacherous mountainsides and the magnificent golden eagle surveys all. To the south, the glaciers that built the cathedral fjords of the Kenai Peninsula continue to carve the landscape as they have for eons. These pristine wildernesses humble humankind, putting lifetimes in perspective and reminding us that, in some places on earth, we are but visitors. Join expert naturalists in the boreal forest, on the tundra and along the bays of Denali and Kenai Fjords National Parks
