What is man without the beasts? – Chief Seattle

“What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beast, happens to man. All things are connected.” – Chief Seattle

Friday was by far the best day of photography since I arrived at Denali. The animals were feeling very photogenic AND the northern lights were out that night.
