Alaska Guide

About This Page

I’m currently writing and mapping guides to hiking and general travel/tourism to destinations all over Alaska. My focus is on sharing beautiful, photogenic locations that would mostly interest hikers interested in photography, but the guide is open to anyone! I’m including things to do in town as well, so it might just turn out to be a general travel guide. This project is in its infancy, but I currently have 25 more guides on the drafting board and have a goal of over 60 by the end of 2020. I’m still working out some mapping kinks, but I expect to have at least a couple new posts per week. I plan for a formal roll-out of this project as well as organization by type and region once there is enough content. Please hit subscribe below for updates!
