Experiencing a Glacier by Helicopter Drop-Off

Experiencing a Glacier by Helicopter Drop-Off It is a blue bird day, in other words, there is not a cloud in sight. One of the benefits of being on the interior of Alaska is a warmer and dryer landscape. This creates perfect windows of opportunity to have crystal clear views of the intricate layers that make up the Mat-Su Valley. Not only that, but [...]

Camping in Alaska

Camping in Alaska The camping options you have at your finger tips span far and wide in Alaska. Maybe you want to go full force into the raw elements and cowboy camp under the stars and out in the open. On the other hand, you might need a break to relax into the creature comforts and recharge on your trip with showers and warm [...]

Alaska Glacier Climbing Experience

Alaska Glacier Climbing Experience We walk one by one in a single file line. Each of our steps is deliberate and sets firmly. The morning sun softens the ice, simultaneously providing good grip for our feet. A crunching chorus follows along with our group of four. Beneath us the ice is white and we chase the blue crevasse lines in the distance. We have [...]

Kayaking with Whales

Kayaking with Whales It is early June and the air in the morning still holds a sharp chill. There is a cloudy mist that halos the illusive sun and cloaks everything in sight.  The waves roll in over the ocean-rounded stones that edge the shore.  It sounds as if the beach is breathing with every wave. The tide is coming in. We move quickly [...]

Alpine Views in The Chugach Range

  Alpine Views An Early Morning Start The van is parked, engine still hot from the ride through the mountains. We are at the backside of Hatcher Pass, at the feet of the Talkeetna range. Beyond the historic center where gold mining once thrived and far past the day hikers routes is where we start to assemble ourselves. The sun rise was bright [...]

Paddle On Alaska

Sea Kayaking the Alaskan Coast The road to a sea kayakers dream is lined by the Turnagain Arm. This is where the famous Bore Tide occurs and people have been known to surf the "endless wave". We are on our way to the port city of Whittier for a coastal adventure, just a couple hours drive from Anchorage. The scenery is epic along this highway. [...]

The First Steps of Adventure

A Taste for Exploration Bright oranges and pinks rise with the sun. Simultaneously, the van navigates the ever twisting perimeter of asphalt that skirts the Chugach range. We, the other guide and myself, are moving towards our morning gathering in Anchorage. The smell of morning coffee fills the van as we both go over, for the third time, our gear checklist and itinerary. The [...]
