It took David Freese a dozen years to document the majesty of the Pacific Coast from Alaska to Baja Mexico. He chose a panoramic format to convey the breadth and grandeur of Mount Saint Elias, the second highest peak in the United States. Located on the border between Alaska and the Yukon, the mountain is seen here from the sea.
