10-Days Backpacking in Alaska's Lake Clark National Park
This summer, I offered the third-ever Bearfoot Theory group adventure where myself and and a group of Bearfoot Theory readers ventured into the Alaskan wilderness for 10 days of backpacking. Led by our guides from Alaska Alpine Adventures, we hiked across tundra, icy rivers, snowy passes, boulder fields, and high alpine mountains. Watch this new travel vlog to see everything you get to experience in Alaska's backcountry.

State of Eight: A Journey to all 8 of Alaska's National Parks
The State of Eight is Video Documentary I worked on for over a year chronically an adventure to all eight of Alaska's National Parks. This is not a video of a cruise, but of 4 people who found a way to get to all eight of Alaska's national parks. Some are easy to get to (Glacier Bay, Denali, Kenai Fjords) but other (Lake Clark, Kobuk Valley, Gates of the Arctic) were a downright logistic headache to figure out... but that's what makes the adventure worth taking! Hope you enjoy as much as I did. This was filmed in the late summer of 2017 and early summer of 2018.
National Parks Featured (In Order)
- Glacier Bay National Park
- Gates of the Arctic National Park
- Denali National Park

If you have any questions, please send me a message or write in the comment section, I'd love to share my itinerary, tips, and tricks to help your next adventure in Alaska.

Visiting Denali National Park and Preserve, National park in Alaska, United States
Denali /dɨˈnaːli/ (also known as Mount McKinley, its former official name) is the highest mountain peak in North America, with a summit elevation of 20,310 feet (6,190.5 m) above sea level. At some 18,000 ft (5,500 m), the base-to-peak rise is the largest of any mountain situated entirely above sea level. With a topographic prominence of 20,156 feet (6,144 m) and a topographic isolation of 4,629 miles (7,450 km), Denali is the third most prominent and third most isolated peak after Mount Everest and Aconcagua. Located in the Alaska Range in the interior of the U.S. state of Alaska, Denali is the centerpiece of Denali National Park and Preserve. For more info, visit this link:

The Alaskan Adventure: 5 days in Denali National Park and Preserve
Alaska Summer Hiking Adventures - Lake Clark, Denali, Talkeetnas
I recently took an epic summer trip to Alaska. We hiked through some of the most beautiful parks and mountains in the state, including Lake Clark National Park, Denali State Park and the Talkeetna Mountain Range. Here is a little video I put together of my adventure. This trip was in partnership with Nature Valley.
Hiking in Alaska - Lonely Planet travel videos
Follow Lonely Planet writer Greg Benchwick as he journeys into the wilds of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula along the Russian Lakes Trail. The trail takes you past lakes, towering mountains and into the thick of bear country. You can make it in two days, but it's nice to extend your trip at one of the rustic backcountry cabins along the way. This is grizzly country, and using proper bear etiquette is essential.

Alaska Public Lands Information Center Museum in Anchorage Tour (4K)
We toured the Alaska Public Lands Information Center in Anchorage. This is actually a nice museum and free to get in. We heard it about it from our guide in the Alaska City Trolley Tour (see our video on that here: )
Interestingly it is actually a Federal building so you must submit to a security screening process similar to one you would undertake nowadays at an airport. The exhibits were pretty realisitic and informative. There is also a theater where you can watch short (~15 minutes) informational/educational features regarding Alaska.
There was even a scavenger hunt for kids where they can get a small prize.
The Alaska Public Lands Information Center was a short walk away from where we were dropped off from a free Port of Anchorage shuttle. This was from our June 2017 14 day Alaska Cruise aboard the Holland America Amsterdam. =======================

ALASKA - USA Travel Guide | Around The World
Alaska is the 49th and largest state in the United States of America. Separated from the rest of the country, (the lower 48), by Canada, Alaska lies on the Arctic Circle. It is still the least densely populated state in the union and for a long time was home to the lowest population. America's final frontier is the size of California, Texas and Montana combined, making it huge in comparison to the rest of the states! Alaska is also home to the highest point in North America and all of the top ten highest mountains in the USA. Across the Bering Strait lies the country of Russia and the continent of Asia.

There are many things to do when traveling to Alaska. If you are the adventurous type then Alaska will be a great place to go.

Stay up late to see the midnight sun, it's fascinating to watch in the summer when daytime seems endless.

Wrangell–St. Elias National Park and Preserve is a United States national park and national preserve managed by the National Park Service in south central Alaska. The park and preserve was established in 1980 by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act. This protected area is included in an International Biosphere Reserve and is part of the Kluane/Wrangell–St. Elias/Glacier Bay/Tatshenshini-Alsek UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park and preserve form the largest area managed by the National Park Service in the United States by area with a total of 13,175,799 acres (20,587.186 sq mi; 53,320.57 km2), an expanse that could encapsulate a total of six Yellowstone National Parks. The park includes a large portion of the Saint Elias Mountains, which include most of the highest peaks in the United States and Canada, yet are within 10 miles (16 km) of tidewater, one of the highest reliefs in the world. Wrangell–St. Elias borders on Canada's Kluane National Park and Reserve to the east and approaches the U.S. Glacier Bay National Park to the south. The chief distinction between park and preserve lands is that sport hunting is prohibited in the park and permitted in the preserve. In addition, 9,078,675 acres (3,674,009 ha) of the park are designated as the largest single wilderness in the United States.
Wrangell–St. Elias National Monument was initially designated on December 1, 1978, by President Jimmy Carter using the Antiquities Act, pending final legislation to resolve the allotment of public lands in Alaska. Establishment as a national park and preserve followed the passage of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act in 1980. The park, which is bigger than the country Switzerland, has long, extremely cold winters and a short summer season. It supports a variety of large mammals in an environment defined by relative land elevation. Plate tectonics are responsible for the uplift of the mountain ranges that cross the park. The park's extreme high point is Mount St. Elias at 18,008 feet (5,489 m), the second tallest mountain in both the United States and Canada. The park has been shaped by the competing forces of volcanism and glaciation. Mount Wrangell is an active volcano, one of several volcanoes in the western Wrangell Mountains. In the St. Elias Range Mount Churchill has erupted explosively within the past 2,000 years.
