More Alaskan Landscapes,
Glaciers, and a Church
From airplanes and a helicopter I kept looking for pictures
that captured the white wonderland beneath me. Here is
another example. On any flight in Alaska, try very hard for
a window seat. You will not regret it.
Glaciers are below, along with snow and mountains.
Face of the Portage Glacier, just before a large section
collapsed into the water, which is called calving. Another
video highlight, back in 1990, long before I had ever heard
about global warming.
This small Russian Orthodox Church on the Kenai Peninsula
is over 100 years old. A reminder that Alaska belonged to
Russia before it was purchased by the United States.
The church cemetery. In my video I interviewed a priest
who serves these active churches by commuting between
them. Some of Alaska's Russian Orthodox Churches have
been designated as American National Historic Sites.
