Odd Pictures from Trout Streams, Page 3
These odds and ends didn't fit into any of my other categories. Sometimes a really weird (or slightly twisted) picture opportunity presents itself and it's hard to can't pass it up. I think the oddest picture so far was the crayfish that grabbed my nymph and held on long enough for the camera.
Denali from near Murphy Dome. I don't know what the peculiar bright light is shining near the top of the mountain on the right side. It was conspicuous like this for several minutes. I don't know what's up there that would reflect sunlight (or emit its own light) and look so much brighter than everything else from 150 miles away.
Denali from near Murphy Dome. This was the clearest view of the mountain I've ever had from this far away (150 miles).
View toward the Minto Flats
This is one of my favorite pictures -- I think it really captures the character of the place. This is the view from the south of Sukakpak Mountain, a prominent landmark on the south side of the Brooks Range. The Dalton Highway winds in an arc around Sukapak, providing very different views from different angles.
The Tanana offers several nice views of the high peaks of the Alaska Range.

Abandoned ptarmigan habitat. I found a few white feathers from birds molting out of their winter plumage, but didn't see or hear any live ptarmigan.
