Browsing The Atlantic's Photo blog is one of my favorite daily rituals — the work is thoughtfully edited and beautifully presented. Hiking near, on, and ever sometimes under Alaska's glaciers is one of my favorite outdoor experiences — there is nothing else like it. So it's a special delight to see my work from Alaska's glaciers presented on The Atlantic's Photo blog:
This is work from both assignments and personal trips taken over the last nine years starting with my first trip onto the Matanuska Glacier in 2009 for a New York Times travel piece, through a couple personal trips this past summer. These places have one of the most rewarding work-to-awe ratios of any outdoor experience you can have. A reasonably fit person can reach any of these locations on a day hike and be back in time for dinner.
