Images from the North

Adventurer Stefan Wackerhagen captures the elemental wildness of the Yukon and Alaska
By Stefan Wackerhagen - August 11th, 2008

Editor's Note: 

Guide and photographer Stefan Wackerhagen knows the wilds of the Yukon and Alaska as few people do, and here he shares some of his favorite images with readers.

“I spend every possible minute immersed in the natural wilderness of Canada's Yukon Territory and Alaska. I work as a hiking, canoeing and dogsledding guide and, whenever I have a day off, I'm outdoors skiing, snowshoeing, fishing or cycling. Whenever I'm out, I have a camera with me. The Yukon offers so many extraordinary panoramas, its light shifts in such incredible ways, and its seasons change so fast and are so different that I always feel I might miss something if I'm stuck indoors. Both in my guiding and in my photography, I'm attempting to capture something of this northern land and its wildlife - - so I can share my fascination with others.”  --Stefan Wackerhagen

I spent a few summers a long time ago in the Canadian Yukon and in Alaska. I've always longed to go back. Your photos jogged that desire. I would love to hike with a camera for a long long time. Loved seeing these.
