Your Alaska Travel Guide From a Local
Alaska travel reviews, travel tips and suggestions from the perspective of someone completely captivated by the beauty, wonder and colorful inhabitants of this amazing place enough to move here… to Alaska.
Living in Alaska has been a dream come true for me. I’ve always been drawn to the mountains and wilderness (something in short supply where I grew up in the Midwest of the US). I remember hearing people describe their visit to “The Great Land”, or hearing others talk about their summers working in “The Last Frontier”. The more I heard, the more I had to see it! The first time I visited Alaska, I realized this was a place unlike any other, and I had to move here. So, a few years later, I packed up my 4runner and trailer with everything I could fit, sold and gave away the rest and hit the road for the adventure of a lifetime! I’ve never looked back!
While I’m completely passionate about Alaska, I’m equally passionate about sharing it and the experiences I’ve had here with others. This is a place that needs to be shared, visited, explored and experienced in order to be understood. For those of us who live here and those that visit, Alaska awakens something deep within us, pulling us into the awe of its grandeur.
There’s such a variety of places here, that Alaska is almost like it’s own country. Whether it’s the rugged, mountainous wilderness of Denali National Park, the quaint, beautiful fishing towns of Seward, Kenai and Homer on the Kenai Peninsula, or the lush, green temperate rain forests of Southeast Alaska, there’s definitely something here for everyone. From mountain summits to powerful glaciers to endless coasts, there’s more to explore than one could see in a lifetime.
Your Alaska travel should be focused and informed, so your visit will be exactly what you want and hopefully much, much more. Let Alaska Travel Journal be your guide to experiencing Alaska a little off-the-beaten-path, through the unique perspective of a local completely sold out to this great place.
