Alaska – Seward Anchorage Highway
Finally made it to the Last Frontier in July. Alaska was on my list for the last 2 years, but somehow the plan never formalized, in fact I was way too lazy for my own good. It is one of the largest states in the United States and the least populated as well. The population increases during the summer which is the peak of tourism. People from all over the world come there for work and to run their own business.
Alaska was exactly as I thought, as a matter of fact more beautiful. Anchorage, Denali National Park and all the other places we saw in between. Surrounded by Hills, Mountains, lakes, water inlets from the Pacific, wildlife pretty much everything you would want to see as a landscape/nature photographer.
Day 1 in anchorage, my friends and I went on a long beautiful drive along the Seward-Anchorage highway (South). The drive is very beautiful, with the bay (Turnagain Arm) on one side and hills of the Chugach State Park on the other.
After about driving 4o miles we reached Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. We got lucky, because we had no clue about this center. We just happened to be there and it was definitely worth it. We got to see some beautiful Alaskan wildlife.
And then it was time to head back. We had to go to the airport to pick up another friend with whom we left for Denali the next day ..
