Tide pool at sunset

Ernest Manewal captured this image of a mountain biker reflected in a tide pool at Sitka National Historical Park, for the photo contest-plus-exhibit Sitkans in Action, which runs through the end of October at the park Visitor Center. There was a tie for second place: Ryan Carpenter’s “Sunset from Totem Trail” and Harriet McClain’s “Walk in the Park 1.” And while the park is a beautiful place to catch a sunset(on the rare autumn day when we see the sun!), it’s a less-than-ideal place to ride. Biking is off-limits on trails, says ranger Becky Latanich, and discouraged on beaches.
