Alaska – The « Far North » experience

Our unexpected (and little scary) encounter during a hiking session

Pauline & Aimée are coming to the end of this first filming session in Alaska. It’s thus the occasion for them to share some thoughts on their experience in the ‘Far North’…

« Alaska is absolutely incredible…! Nature is omnipresent and stretches endlessly. The fauna and flora abound despite the rough wintry climatic conditions. This omnipresence totally affects the way Humans coexist with it. It’s not rare to run into a black bear (as the picture below can testify!), a grizzly, a moose (we can also testify!), wolves…

All of this compelling these populations never to lower their guard, to take every precaution at any time (bring an anti-bear spray and even a weapon sometimes…), and organize themselves depending on the life surrounding them (such as not camping near rivers nor woods).

We then realized how the domestication of Nature in France can create a huge feeling of omnipotence. On the contrary, we didn’t feel in Alaska that we were ‘dominating’ the site but had to accommodate, obliging us to a certain humility towards this very same Nature. »
