Mile 238.5 George Parks Hwy, Denali National Park and Preserve, AK 99755, USA
We stayed a night at Salmon Bake cabins and enjoyed dinner there too! The beds were so comfy and the view from cabin 3 was worth the price alone. At the restaurant Sean said the salmon burger was the best he'd ever had! My happy happy hippy...

201 4th Ave, Seward, AK 99664, USA
Like many Alaskan bars, the roof is festooned with dollar bills stapled to the ceiling. Like many coastal Alaskan bars, the dollar bills hang with life rings from various local ships. This joint is a classic cocktail & beer kinda bar. No fuss, no...

208 4th Ave, Seward, AK 99664, USA
They serve food, but this is pretty much a classic drinking lounge, overstuffed, wheeled pleather chairs included. Step into this fabulous drinkin' joint and you feel like you're back in 1973, including an amazing collection of classic/kitschy...

426 G St, Anchorage, AK 99501, USA
Great place for drinks. Eclectic local crowd, good service, plenty of drink options, and snacks are available. Get their early on a weekend night though as it gets packed late night.
Save Place
Anchorage, AK, USA
Lots of folks come to Alaska during our beautiful summers and in February for sled dog races, even in winter for reliable, skiable snow. But if you happen to be in town in early January for a dental convention or to pursue oil drilling in our...

Mile Marker 92 Denali Park Road, Denali, AK 99755, USA
A friend from college had worked and lived in Alaska for many years and invited me to come and visit in the fall. Keep in mind, that "fall" in the tundra is mid-August to mid-September (snow will fly by October). I had been to Alaska before and...
Save Place
Denali National Park and Preserve, AK 99743, USA
Located 7 miles from the entrance of Denali National Park and Preserve, lies Denali Park Village. Complete with both The Lodge and The Cabins, both offer comfortable accommodations on the bank of a rippling river, with stellar mountain views. The...

Unless you backpack in, the only way to venture past Mile 14 on the 92-mile Park Road is by converted school bus. (The NPS is a beautiful example of democracy in action—my Tundra Wilderness bus was packed with visitors carrying the latest...

23601 Talkeetna Spur Rd, Talkeetna, AK 99676, USA
"The mountain is out today!", my dad and I kept hearing from cheery Alaskans on board the Alaska Railroad, as we made our way from Anchorage up to Talkeetna on a crisp May day. Prior to my visit to Alaska, I didn't know that locals referred to...
Save Place
Fairbanks, AK, USA
My entry for the adventure contest is our trip to Chena Hot Springs one hour outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. During the day we took a mushing adventure through the ice and snow covered forest. At night, we waited in 10 below freezing cold to see the...
Save Place
Herning Rd, Fairbanks, AK 99712, USA
I wasn’t sure what to expect from a dogsled ride but the enthusiasm of the dogs, like athletes at the start of a competition, was infectious. Whooshing over the snow, through the forest with the wind in your face is invigorating. My musher was...

551 Eberhardt Rd, Fairbanks, AK 99712, USA
I gave myself the challenge of photographing the Northern Lights. First, I had to go where I could see them. Taste of Alaska Lodge is set up nearly ideally for this. Rooms in the lodge have patio doors for exiting mid-night to check the sky, with...

Marathon Mountain, Alaska 99664, USA
Mount Marathon is a popular 5k trail running race in Seward, Alaska. The problem is, no one on their right mind should run it. We learned about the trail from some locals and decided to try it out – walking, not running. It was difficult to find...

1201 E Whitney Rd, Anchorage, AK 99501, USA
There are not very many roads through the interior of Alaska, and even fewer rail lines. The main Alaska Railroad line runs from Seward, through Anchorage, to Fairbanks, through pristine Alaskan wilderness. Breathtaking views of Denali (Mount...
