Guide and photographer Stefan Wackerhagen knows the wilds of the Yukon and Alaska as few people do, and here he shares some of his favorite images with GreatOutdoors.com readers.
“I spend every possible minute immersed in the natural wilderness of Canada's Yukon Territory and Alaska. I work as a hiking, canoeing and dogsledding guide and, whenever I have a day off, I'm outdoors skiing, snowshoeing, fishing or cycling. Whenever I'm out, I have a camera with me. The Yukon offers so many extraordinary panoramas, its light shifts in such incredible ways, and its seasons change so fast and are so different that I always feel I might miss something if I'm stuck indoors. Both in my guiding and in my photography, I'm attempting to capture something of this northern land and its wildlife - - so I can share my fascination with others.” --Stefan Wackerhagen
