Alaska is a great land that pretty much begs to be bragged about. A visit here means telling your friends and family about adventuring among the most amazing, biggest, tallest, vastest, and awe-inspiring views, wildlife, and natural phenomenon. So, while we hate to brag…c’mon, we LIVE here!
We know this place like the back of our hands…yet one of our favorite parts is there is always a new exploration to enjoy! One of the things that make an Alaska experience such a rich one is getting to know the people, behind the scenes activities, and lesser known tips and tricks to getting the most out of your adventure.
While taking in the monumental view of Denali, you probably won’t recognize that the two park rangers standing on the glacier with you met and fell in love at base camp 26-years ago; or that the pilot that flew you to the glacier grew up in bush Alaska, relying on planes as every day transportation. You may not realize the quilt you’re sleeping under is handmade, or the gardening expertise that goes into the crisp Alaskan grown veggies. The lesser known stories of lovers of Alaska that make your experience so memorable represent a certain artistry against a rugged landscape.
Our personal mission with this blog is to share those stories, offer our earned expertise on getting the most out of your adventure, and share our own continued explorations. We hope that following our blog you will get excited about your upcoming adventure, start dreaming about a new incredible Alaska journey, or get nostalgic for your days visiting in the past and decide to return (we’d love to have you)!
