Alaska

Alaska is America’s natural jewel.  Nestled way up north with a remote and rugged landscape, it is home to the most national parks in the US.  It’s also home to some very remote and hard living which is why I’m so intrigued. With gorgeous mountain and glacier views, solitude is looking pretty good in this northern state. I constantly find unique things to do in Alaska. As I mainly stick to remote communities and national parks I often get a feel for the epic culture taking place. In each new journey I find incredibly nice people and plenty of things to do in Alaska that will keep you busy in summer or winter travels!
