An arctic fox checks the air with a inquisitive look in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. #anwr #alaska #arcticnationalwildliferefuge #arcticfox #cangeo #opcmag #animalelite #igscwildlife #wildlfephotography

This year’s moose calf keeps a watchful eye while it’s mother feeds on lush greens at the forest edge. I captured this shot at the beginning of a big adventure which included a 12 day expedition paddle along the coast of the Beaufort Sea to bring awareness to President Trumps plan to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil development. A truly short sighted and catastrophic plan if it goes ahead. #arcticnationalwildliferefuge #anwr #moose #explorealaska #alaskaadventures #igscwildlife #animalelite #sharecangeo #travelalaska #arctic #naturephotography #opcmag #wildlifephotography

Our first night on the Arctic coast with so much ice and wind has me fondly looking back to a couple weeks ago when we hiked the Chilkoot trail. #explorealaska #womenoutdoors #chilkoottrail #getoutdoors #hikingadventures #roamtheplanet #discover_earth #opcmag #wethriveoutdoors #bestcampingadventures #gowild #alaska

The likely survivor(s) of this nest of gulls has been decided by timing. Instinct tells the parents to focus on the strongest of their young making it unlikely that the chick in the unhatched egg will survive more than a few hours after hatching. The next oldest chick still moist from hatching will have to be very aggressive at feeding time to have any chance of surviving alongside its much larger older sibling. #naturephotography #birdsofinstagram #wildlifeeducation #lakeleberge #birdsnest #hatchlings #cbcyukon #wildlifephotography

One more day and the journey begins, off to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. I will be be involved with the expedition planning on paddling the north coast of Alaska. With spring conditions being a month behind, our paddling route is in question as the coast is still ice covered. The late spring has been especially hard on the Porcupine Caribou herd preventing them from reaching their calving grounds and for the hundreds of thousands of waterfowl that migrate there to nest.

A wolf in the woods. Finally checked out the kroschel films wildlife center in Haines Alaska. A great source of Alaskan wildlife education and message for wilderness preservation. #wolf #timberwolf #alaskawildlife #explorealaska #haines #mosquitolake #kroschelwildlifepreserve #wildlifeeducation

The skeletal remains of a canoe left behind during the 1898 Klondike Goldrush creates its own micro environment along the Chilkoot trail. #chilkoottrail #chilkoot #goldrush #klondike #paddleforever #canoelife #canoekayakmag #hikingadventures #campinglife cbcyukon #exploretheworld #klondikegoldrushnationalhistoricalpark #opcmag #wethriveoutdoors #iphone6

Spent summer solstice hiking over the Chilkoot Trail. I’ve climbed the pass over a dozen times.....I will never grow tired of this amazing trail. #chilkoottrail #beautifulbc #explorealaska #exploreyukon #roamtheplanet #hikingadventures #dirtbagging

Storm clouds, sunshine and blue skies. This is one of my favourite paddling destinations. I have been paddling at this place for years and have never seen anyone else on it....get out and explore!#paddleforever #exploreyukon #opcmag #paddlingmixtape #cbcyukon ##getoutandpaddle #bigsky #goproawards #wildernessculture

Eye to eye with a pine marten. Long and lean, curious and mean, one of my favourite members of the weasel family. #pinemarten #borealforest #weasel #ShareCanGeo #arcticwildlife #canadianwildlife #animalelite #predator #marvelouz_animals #exploremag #cbcyukon #northof60
