Edition of 950 11" x 14" unframed
After months of cold and darkness, the icy grip of winter is but a distant memory. Fueled by the energy of eighteen hours of sunlight, new life explodes across the land. The cottongrass(arctic cotton) form a floral wreath around small kettle lakes--ancient relics of the last ice age--and twenty miles distant, the still ice covered mountains of Denali preside over the unfolding spectacle.
Sacred ground is wilderness--all the land and communities of plants and animals still unsullied by human occupation. The great Harvard University biologist E.O. Wilson described it well:
"Wilderness settles peace on the soul because it needs no help and it allows us access to the world in which the human spirit was born."
