Into the Wild

Into the wild – № 2

“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit
is his passion for adventure.”

Jon Krakauer (Into the Wild)

Not all may subscribe to this statement. And adventure means different things to different people. To me an adventure begins with the unknown. Some level of uncertainty. If I step outside in the morning and go look for wildlife or visit a familiar location like this place at Round Prairie I never know what to expect. I have come back to this place many times because there is a magnificent mountain in the distance that gets illuminated by the setting sun in the right conditions. Well, it has happened only once so far. But even on a snowy day, I found snow covered bison, moose nibbling on willows or lovely snow mounds.

What’s your next adventure?

By the way, if you want to read a nice write-up about the adventures of Chris McCandless and his followers visit Eva Hollands essay “Chasing Alexander Supertramp“.

  1. Gorgeous image! I, too, loved “Into the Wild” and even located the Stampede Trail Alexander Supertramp (aka Chris McCandless) used to eventually find the abandoned school bus on the northern extremes of Denali NP&P where he finally died. I drove it for a short distance before it became too narrow and dicey…

    • I wonder what that road looked like, when they hauled that bus there. They had to cross the Teklanika and some swampy areas, which now make for an adventurous hike. I made the “pilgrimage” to the bus on foot and I am glad I did it.
