Clear Morning View of the Mountains in front of Lake Clark National Preserve


Original. MOV.

These mountains shown in this video are not always clearly in view. When they are, it is stunning. I took this video from my truck to give an idea of how things look on the day-to-day, without actually taking pains to make things look perfect. Sometimes I like how things appear in ordinary moments, more than I do when trying to make things appear as nice as they could. This was just a crisp and clear moment from yesterday morning.

Below are some photos showing my rough location on the globe. When I took this photo, I was facing straight west, from the marker shown on the maps.

Just yesterday he was on my property, just entering, at 9:10 p.m.

A sow and her cubs also spotted nearby. The mother stood up on her hind legs and gave me a tall stare. I'm glad I was in the safety of my truck.

Series: Off Grid Living in Alaska

Last night on my property, my driveway was blocked by a large Moose and its calf, and I couldn't push them off the road with my truck due to undrivable snow depths and icy conditions. The moose do not like to exit the driveway, even with a truck driving behind them. On foot they are even more difficult. There was no way I could scare them off the road...
