Early Morning on the Copper River

Waking up early in the morning has definite perks while traveling in Alaska. Wildlife is more active, most people are still in bed, and the sky lights up with magnificent colors. We traveled along the road to McCarthy as the sun was rising to the east. Along a cliff, we stopped to take in the beauty and this photo was taken there. It was around 5:30 am, the air was cool, the only sounds were birds singing and the water running below us. My wife and I are most happy when we are traveling and enjoying the great outdoors we call home. When the stress of everyday life gets us down, one trip into the wilderness cures everything.
