8 Incredible Shots of Alaska from Photojournalist Emily Mesner

For the past few months my friend Emily Mesner has been working as a media specialist for Denali National Park and Preserve in the Interior of Alaska. She has taken countless stunning photos during her time out on the Last Frontier and she was kind enough to let me share some of them on my blog.

Below, check out scenes from one of America's largest national parks (Denali contains 4.7 million acres, in case you were wondering). And then scroll back up here and follow this link to Emily's website, where you will find much, much more. Her Instagram is certainly worth your time, as well.
