kayaking the eerily serene, glacial ice filled waters of the northwestern lagoon was one of my favorite experiences, not my bucket list adventure of kayaking with whales (which i dearly want to do) but darn close. first 📸: @verona725

circle of life: a male pink salmon (humpback salmon) makes its way back to resurrection river to spawn, only to be thwarted in the shallow waters by sea gulls (that pecked its eyes out). there's a brown bear that frequents this spot so at least this life won't go to waste.

during our short visit to the park, we take a moment to wander through the vast expanse, forging trails through the low-lying brush. blueberries are bountiful and sweet, taking full advantage of the season's heat to ripen in the long summer sun. i split my time picking berries and keeping an eye out for caribou or moose. a network of natural paths and scat confirm my suspicion, indeed indicating signs of frequent wildlife traffic. following them makes it just a bit speedier to explore and negotiate through the terrain, and before long it's time to return to the main road, where an approaching eastbound bus is ready to shuttle us off to the next location.

expedition grade. the main access to denali national park is via the 92 mile park road, of which only the first 15 miles are paved. only buses and specially permitted vehicles are allowed past the paved section, which helps keep the traffic and congestion to a minimum. the crown jewel of the 6 million acre alaskan wilderness preserve is the 20,310 ft high denali (seen in the distance), the highest peak in north america and one of the seven summits of the world.

fbf to the big island when we witnessed creation before our very own eyes: the spectacular lava flow from Puʻu ʻŌʻō (the eastern rift zone of the kīlauea volcano) as it enters the ocean.

fields of change. in 2016 hawaii commercial and sugar shut down its sugar operations after 134 years, ending the last of the hawaiian islands' production. i'm a bit sad as these lush, grassy fields are so much a part of the character and identity of maui, and nobody knows yet what may become of all the agricultural land. just glad to have captured this view before the inevitable change.

exploring other worldly landscapes by hiking the keonehe'ehe'e (sliding sands) trail 1,400 feet into the crater of haleakala. @verona725 can attest to the butt-kicking on the return ascent.
