194 Olympic Mountain Loop, Girdwood, AK 99587, USA
Most people visiting Girdwood are there to ski at Alyeska or hike the trails in the summertime. When I lived in Alaska, these were common activities for me as well, but during the months I was in Girdwood, I also never missed an chance to hit The...

4970 Campbell Airstrip Rd, Anchorage, AK 99507, USA
Alaskans don’t let freezing (and way below freezing) temps keep them away from having outdoor fun. They just slip on the proper gear and head out. That’s one of the reasons fat-tire biking has become wildly popular in the state. Rent...

Anchorage, AK, USA
A beautiful day wandering around Flattop. This small mountain is close to downtown Anchorage and is a nice get away without a long drive. This particular view shows a bright blue sky with a snow capped mountain in the distance.

8111 Dimond Hook Dr, Anchorage, AK 99507, USA
Looking to get your microbrew fix on in Anchorage? Then hit the Midnight Sun. Great pub food (my reuben was amazing), fresh beers, casual atmosphere.

You can't help but be awed by what a glacier and a few thousand years can do to a landscape. As we hiked closer to Exit Glacier I become aware of the enormity of this sheet of ice that has carved out the valley and the river behind us. Signposts...

14865 Sterling Hwy, Cooper Landing, AK 99572, USA
Alaska is a beautiful state. It seemed no matter where we drove there were gorgeous views of mountains, forest, or waterways, and often wild anaimals. On our way from Anchorage to Homer we stopped at Gwin's Lodge for lunch. I love good sea food...

If you find yourself in Homer Alaska, a visit to The Salty Dawg Saloon is in order. What I remember of Homer Alaska is fishing boats, cool air off the water, and friendly people. What I liked about the Salty Dawg Saloon was its charming rustic...

Harding Icefield, Alaska 99664, USA
While in Seward, Alaska one must take the hike along the Exit Glacier up to the Harding Icefield. It is a bit difficult at times, especially if there is snow, which there will be, and there are monster mosquitoes. However, it is amazing; the...

301 Railway Ave, Seward, AK 99664, USA
Perfect for kids, this state-of-the-art marine science aquarium was built with the reparation funds from the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Make sure to take time for a behind-the-scenes tour, where you’ll learn more about their impressive wildlife...

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...

29847 Seward Hwy, Seward, AK 99664, USA
In summer, Kenai Lake and the river by the same name that feeds it is a deluged by fishermen hoping to take trophy salmon from the pristine waters. In winter, the lake is a place of eerie silent stillness... and its surface takes on the blue of...

Mile 79 Seward Hwy, Portage, AK 99587, USA
Alaska has some of the most amazing wildlife in the world. Here is a shot of a mother Elk and her calf basking in the sun. Just one of the many different animals that we came across during our trip.

Lunch in the shadow of Denali at Mountain High Pizza Pie in Talkeetna, Alaska, one of my favorite places in Alaska. Teeny, tiny, but full of character - and good pizza.

13550 E Main St, Talkeetna, AK 99676, USA
We spent the afternoon at Denali brewing savoring their incredible roster of beers. I'd recommend the blonde, raspberry wheat (I swear, much better than typical fruity beers), their tart saison and slightly funky sour. Food was good too, the deep...

22687 Talkeetna Spur Rd, Talkeetna, AK 99676, USA
Get a taste for the local color with economy accommodations at Latitude 62. It's across the street from the train depot and a short walk from Talkeetna's Main Street. It was nice to be able to pull up a stool to the bar to enjoy Alaska brew before...

Whittier, AK 99693, USA
The drive from Anchorage to Whittier is stunning, and our vehicle was full of, “whoa, look at that!” and “what, are you kidding? this is amazing!!” Whittier, population 200, was basically buried in snow, and can only be reached when traveling...

Cooper Landing, AK 99572, USA
To break up the 170-mile drive from Seward to Homer, there are plenty of hiking trails to stretch your legs. Because we were anxious to spot a moose, we selected the Upper Kenai River Trail because it supposedly offered some prime viewing...
