Chugach Waterfall

Chugach National Forest
Alaska, USA

The drive down the Richarson Highway, up over the Thompson Pass just past the Worthington Glacier to Valdez is stunning.  Some of Alaska’s most amazing sites can be gotten to from this thoroughfare.

I’m sure there’d be a fantastic story surrounding this image; how hard it was to get to, or how many hours I had to wait for the perfect lighting and all that – but the truth is it was pouring rain and this huge waterfall just appeared.  So in the pouring rain I did my best to protect the camera and then prayed I did everything else correctly.  You’ll have to decide, but I think it turned out really nice. 

Next year I hope to make another venture out here.  Maybe the waterfall will be there, maybe not.  Either way the trip will be worth it. profile.

See Ya On the Trail!
