Alaska, the 49th state, is the largest state, and also the northernmost, westernmost, and easternmost! It has the most national parks, the most wildlife, the highest mountains, the longest coastline, and the lowest population density.

Alaska is full of oddities and paradoxes, such as a state-run railroad and a state capital that cannot be reached by highway. The biggest traffic hazard is moose on the road, the main airport has several times been closed by volcanic eruptions, and everybody seems to hunt and fish. All legal residents get annual payments from state petroleum revenues, the nearest countries are Canada and Russia, and the whole state was purchased for less than two cents an acre. In a word, Alaska is unique.

I have been to Alaska five times, both by land and by sea, and feel that I have barely begun to scratch the surface. My biggest expedition was a 9000 mile solo round-trip in August and September of 2010 through Canada to Alaska that took me all the way to the Arctic Ocean. In 2013 my wife and I spent three weeks going north by road and ferry, specifically to photograph Glacier Bay and Denali National Parks.

I have divided Alaska into three regions:

  • The first one one covers almost half the state -- Northern and Interior Alaska, including Fairbanks, the Alaska Highway, the Dalton Highway, Denali National Park, and huge areas of "bush" accessible only by boat or plane.
  • The second is South-Central Alaska, including Anchorage, the Kenai Peninsula, Prince William Sound, the Copper River and Wrangell-Saint Elias National Park (the world's largest parkland).
  • The third region consists of the panhandle of Southeastern Alaska featuring the ports, islands and fiords of the Inside Passage with picturesque towns and numerous glaciers.
