These are great, Oti! Makes me homesick for Alaska and I've never even been there.

Simply magical! I love the bear shot. Thanks. It is a nice change of pace from NYC I am sure.

They're all great. I really like the totem in progress and the view through the open window. Funny enough, some of this work reminds me of some of the work at the Buddhist temple in Carmel, New York.

I love the way you capture atmosphere in your photos. I swear I could feel the air while I was scrolling along. Thanks for making these available.

Kasaan Totem Park is great. That was nice of the artist to let you take photos of his work in progress!
