14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Flying through Chugach National Park

Traveling around Alaska can be extremely difficult since the roads only allows you a glimpse of the beautiful landscape Alaska has to offer. We are fortunate enough to be able to see just about everything that is hidden from the road by be able to fly into this last frontier. In this picture we are surrounded by mountain on either side and in front. Given this opportunity we are searching for dall sheep. Recently their population has recovered over the last decade after being hunted to near extinction in the Chugach range.
