Slope Mtn 2

If ever there was a mountain that was aptly named, it has to be Slope Mountain.  Located in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, its unique profile dominates the landscape…when the top isn’t hidden by clouds, that is.

My primary purpose in visiting this area was to photograph grizzlies, and that I did, but I couldn’t help sneaking in the occasional landscape shot, especially when the weather was so cooperative.

The other time I would turn to landscape photography was when the bears couldn’t be found.  Just because our itinerary had “bear viewing and photography” written on it, sometimes the bears had other plans.  Our guide knew the bears’ habits and where the critters were LIKELY to be at different times of the day, but that was never a guarantee that we would find any.

More often than not we did find bears, grazing, clamming, napping, nursing, bathing, playing and doing all of those cool bear things…but a couple of times we got skunked.

Fortunately the scenery was pretty, with or without bears in it.

  1. Gorgeous. I love the strata

    • Thank you. 🙂

      These are some thick layers to be so clearly visible from such a distance!

  2. The scenery is so beautiful that is was definitely not unbearable (even when they were absent).

    • True that, Mike.

      I was so enjoying the lovely landscape that I “bearly” missed my ursine complanions! 😉

  3. That’s the good part of being in the mountains.
