Neuste Information zu Sebastian Bubmanns Ataraxia Projekt 2012!

After a long drive of 330 miles through the outback of Alaska, we arrived at Thompson Pass, a couple of miles away from Valdez. So far we had some wonderful bluebird days, and now for the first time two “whiteout” days.

Snow kiting at the pass is amazing, perfect wind conditions, and we pretty much impressed the ski-touring people with the speed we can climb mountains with a kite. After two days of wind, we had a wonderful day of speedflying “Odysee”. Shortly after sunset, we took a last ride up the mountain, to do a long exposure shot with a LED Lenser headlamp, which turned out great:

We drove down to Valdez, and had a look around. Valdez is one of the biggest oil ports of Alaska – the trans-alaska-oil-pipeline ends here. The harbor is beautiful and there are no traces anymore of the Exxon Valdez tanker fatality long time ago. Although, the harbor worker Kyle said, that if you dig a little bit at the shores of Prince William Sound, you will still find oil drips.

On the second down day, we had a great party with a lot of friends of the pass, as everyone came down. The weather forecast said that it will clear up tomorrow! Ready for some more action!
