About LDWinger

A resident of Alaska since 1957, now living on the north edge of the huge Wrangell-St Elias National Park & Preserve, I've traveled all over the state and found the Copper River Basin to be the place I prefer to call home. Magnificent scenery in every direction, four full seasons (although 3 of them can be pretty short), and wonderful people. Still, it is enjoyable traveling to other parts of North America, preferably on a motorcycle, seeing the scenery that the rest of the continent has to offer. We are truly blessed to live in such a nation, with such an abundance of natural riches.Create your own visitor map!
