“Paint the Stars”

Dynamic auroral curtains pulse and dance above the great Copper River Basin and across the glittering starfields. Moonrise climbs amid the powerful scene above the volcanic peaks of Mt. Sanford (at left-16,237 ft.), Mt. Drum (center-12,010 ft.) and Mt. Wrangell (at right-12,610 ft.), the prevailing features of the 13.2 million acre Wrangell-Saint Elias National Park & Preserve. Ice fog rising from open leads in the Copper River glows with ethereal light down on the basin floor.
