    Cook Inlet Photo Safari with Alaska Photo Treks

    It all started a couple of years ago when I got the chance to visit Alaska in wintertime. If you haven’t been on our website before, let me tell you that Alaska has a special place in my heart. Last night I was watching Into the Wild for the 100th time and I still had to cry at the end of the movie. So anyway … during this winter trip I met Jody Overstreet from Visit Anchorage, whom had invited me to come and experience Alaka during wintertime. While on this trip, she took the below amazing picture of me and I knew straight away she’s a talented photographer. Over…

    Mountainous Monday: Mount McKinley

    Alaska’s Mount McKinley rises 6.168 m. above sea level, making it the highest mountain in North America. Before even actually specializing in Alaska for my job, I had never heard of the mountain, let alone realizing North America’s highest is actually there. McKinley’s other name is Denali, meaning “The High One” in Athabascan.

McKinley is one of the mountains in the world with the highest prominence, rising above the tundra grounds of Denali. The mountain is a part of…
