Chris Gale is an award-winning wildlife and nature photographer based in Fort Nelson, British Columbia. His work has garnered himself many awards and accolades over his many years exploring and capturing the wild essence that is life along the Alaska Highway.

“Let me introduce myself. My name is Chris Gale, and I am a wildlife and nature photographer from Fort Nelson, British Columbia. About 90% of the photos I’ve taken are from along the Alaska Highway. On this historic road you’ll see an abundance of Wildlife, beautiful landscapes, and spectacular Northern Lights. Over the next few days I’ll be posting some of my favourite photographs from my adventures on the Alaska Highway.”

“The Fishing is always good at Muncho Lake Provincial Park! However, the catching part can be hit or miss(laughs).”

“It’s always a great time camping under the northern lights. Taken in the fall, at Tetsa River Regional Park just off the Alaska Highway.”

“Liard Hot Springs Provincial Park. This is where me and my family go to warm up during the winter. The only hard part is getting out. Over time, you learn to get dressed fast.”

“You never know what you are going to see while driving on the Alaska Highway. Back in 2012, my friends and I helped rescue this moose out of the cold waters of Muncho Lake. With the help from a few other road users, we pulled the moose safely out of the icy water and back to shore. The moose looked back at us before walking off into the forest. Almost like it was saying thank you.”
