Awesome beauty

Seeing something truly awesome provokes an immediate and emotional response in me that is welcome and at the same time completely overwhelming.

We have already traveled so far and yet comepleted such a small fraction of our journey and of what it is possible to see.

Yesterday we rode from Hyder towards the Salmon Glacier. The ride is mile after mile of that feeling. Nature presents itself at its most awesome. Enormous sweeping glacier meets sheer rock face, deep ravines and beautiful giant trees.

My heart beats faster, my eyes fill with tears and I laugh.

I can’t photograph this. I can’t show you the feeling that you will get when you rought the corner that gives you the first glimpse of the glacier.

This is awesome beauty. Stunning and scary.

  6. Hey that’s sounds like one hell of a feeling. I remember seeing the fox glacier (or was it the fraser) in NZ and being blown away. Hope you two are having fun and having been eaten by grizzlies yet? Any good bear photos and I don’t mean of the gay variety ;-) Mind you that could be one of your challenges although from my limited experience there is no diff visually between US bears and rednecks.. apart from when you mention Celine Dion that is. xx
