February 5, 2020: Through the Rockies to Alaska: A Photographic Journey with Laszlo Perlaky
Laszlo's dream to experience and photograph the remote areas of the far North became possible when he and his wife retired in June 2019. They made a three-month expedition through the Rockies, Yukon, and Alaska. During their epic journey, they photographed along the Yukon’s Dempster Highway, traveled the Top of the World Highway to Alaska, and explored the Arctic Wildlife Refuge at the Brooks Range. They camped at the Arctic Circle and visited many beautiful regions in Alaska, coming back through British Columbia to the North Cascades and the Oregon Coast. Laszlo will present the highlights of their 15,000-mile trip and will illustrate it with his outstanding nature photography.
