Peyto Lake, Banff National Park. 
The intense blue colour is due to fine dust or ‘Glacier Flour’ contained in the water that soaks up the other colour waves and reflects this beautiful bright blue. 
I was up at 5am most mornings but was at Bow Lake for sunrise on this morning and wish I had come here instead. Hiked a few hundred feet up from here to start and soaked up the morning sun, read my science and took a quick timelapse. Dropped down to this point to get a bit closer to take this 14 image stitched panorama.

Got back to Canada a few days ago and bee lined it east to The Rockies! Moraine Lake at 6,183ft with a few of the Ten Peaks, which have been some of my favourite mountains on this trip, reflected in the glacier fed water.  15 image stitched pano at sunset. Banff, Canada. July 26, 2014.

Small stream on the way up Exit Glacier, Alaska. July 2014. 
This was around the time I looked up to see my jacket had fallen off my bag and into the stream and was disappearing very quickly. So now my tshirt was wet with sweat and my jacket was, well just soaked.

I was so upset to leave Denali State Park. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so removed from civilisation. The smell, the quiet and the landscape is something that will stay with me forever. This ‘selfie’ is at the top of the Alpine Trail, a short but strenuous 1000ft vertical rise over a one mile track from Eielson on the internal (shuttle bus only) Park Road. I will definitely come back and pitch a tent for a week or two and explore this amazing area.

Denali’s 20,237ft and the National Park it’s situated in changed me. I was so lucky to see the mountain, and till the following morning it was the only time I’d see it fully again. Usually hidden in cloud, Denali with it’s 18,000ft base-to-peak rise is considered the largest of the mountains on earth. It is incredible.

Did a hike up Exit Glacier a few days ago. 2500 vertical feet, not a huge accomplishment but with a heavy pack full of camera gear I didn’t even need, really bad choice of jeans and sneakers, not nearly enough water and no food, I certainly didn’t have my priorities right. Was a good day though #nobears !!
