Having worked as a bush pilot out of Denali and Talkeetna for the past 3 summers, I feel qualified to announce the fact that your pictures are fantastic! Check out the photo gallery at denaliair.com to see some more shots of scenes around Denali Nat'l park. Some of the pics were taken from the back seat of a Navajo I was flying at the time.

Awesome photos and journey.

Russell Biggs

Wow, fantastic pics.

Wow...Shaun, you have captured Alaska as I have never seen it(and probably never will)! I was there last year for the first time, and I can't wait to get back. Your pictures make me "homesick" to get back sooner! You have great lenses, and you know how to make that 20D sing! Thank you so much for showing us the real Alaska!

Hello Shaun,

Thank you for sharing this amazing adventure!

Your visual rendition of the wondrous and breathtaking beauty of our land in the North is simply fantastic!

As a flight attendant for Alaska Airlines, I've had the opportunity to set foot off an aircraft in some very remote and special places in this beautiful State, however nothing the like compared to your adventures. Truly an inspiration! I wanna go..... :-)

Blessings, and best wishes for a happy and safe 2008!

Shawn,I don't know if this will get to you, don't understand what typekey account is. I started my flying career in Alaska, spent 4 1/2 years there. Have flown many places in the world since Alaska during the late 50's early 60's. Flew bush and non-sched, left a B-18 on Chirikof Island, PA-14 with the big tires, Beaver out of AKN. I've never seen scenery to rival Alaska's diversity and wildlife. The rough landing sites stirred memories. I am hoping to revisit Alaska, perhaps with a Seawind and spend some months hopefully, daytrading continuing to smile on me. I caried a camara with me most of the time I flew but regretably never took any photos. Great job on your photos.

Shaun, Thank you so much for sharing your photo's, what a journey and what an adventure. They document the sheer beauty of Alaska and the diversity of terrain & weather, most of us will never ever see Alaska for ourselves in person but i have just spent an hour looking at the photographs, sometimes with a smile at your wit, they are truely breath taking.
Congratulations & Kind regards from the UK

My father was transferred to Ft. Wainwright back in July, 1961. During our 3 years there, we experienced Alaska as a true "Last Frontier". I tried to confirm our 1st winter there as -79 below but the official records are held at the airport. I do remember the weather girl saying it was going to be a high of -63 and a low of -67, and we woke up to 17 degrees above zero due to the chinook winds. We were involved with the Cuban Missle Crisis as well as the Alaska Earthquake. I returned to Fairbanks after 40 years and met some people that I went to high school with at Lathrop. Within minutes, those 40 years disappeared as if we last saw each other yesterday. Your pictures are a microcosm of the beauty of Alaska. Too bad we can't take pictures of the people of Alaska. Their beauty is equally as awesome as your pictures. Thank you.

Excellent photo journal!
I long to backpack and get back to the wilderness again.
Thank you for letting us live this through you!

Arch

Enjoyed every frame. I also had a long one way conversation with a black bear in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He wanted the 40 lb of dog food in the back of my Jeep. Finally, figured he would get the dog food whether I gave it to him or not. He was a very happy bear when I tossed it to him. No agression on either side.

Sounds like you are about as crazy as Vietnam Helicopter Pilots, submariners and special forces guys. Never stop.

Daniel

Wow bro!
I love your pictures and your relationship with the One who created all this. I've been to Petersburg and enjoyed seeing it again, thanks for an amazing visual tour of AK
