Make Anchorage The Focus Of Your Wanderlust And The First Stop Of Your Future Travels!

Portage Glacier is truly impressive.

Or maybe youโ€™ll prefer Hubbard Glacier.

No one can deny the majesty of Denali.

Have you ever heard of Sleeping Woman Mountain?

From above, youโ€™ll see how it gets its name.

Fog rolling over the water is beautiful, not gloomy.

You never know who youโ€™ll run into.

This was a young pregnant female moose that was very unhappy at everything and everyone. I kept my distance but she still kept her on me. Itโ€™s so very important to watch pregnant female mooseโ€™s body languages. I do believe this is the first year for this female moose to be pregnant. #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #moose #mooseinalaska #mooseinthewild #wildlife #wildlifeonearth #pregnant #pregnantbelly #wildlifepregnancy #naturephotography #nature_of_our_world #explorealaska #bodylanguage #keptaneyeonme #spring #springtime #mooseontheloose #natgeowildlife #alaskalife #alaskalove #lovealaska #alaskaphotography #anchoragealaska #brownfur #hungrymoose #feedingfortwo #smartanimal #hikingadventures #hikingtrails

Owls looking wise in trees.

Even swans.

All youโ€™ll find is beauty as far as the eye can see.

Sunset in Alaska canโ€™t be beat.

After the sun is down, the night is just as gorgeous.

You can try your hand at dog sledding.

Love this shot from @argonautphoto via @natgeo โ € —โ € Photo by Aaron Huey @argonautphoto | Wolves deep in Denali National Park, in Alaska, lead their offspring to new hunting grounds. The Iron Creek packโ€™s breeding pair breaks trail through fresh snow, with the female leading. I watched the pack over the course of three days as they devoured a moose, and then I was lucky enough to catch them as they left that site, crossing this large, unbroken field of snow. Other parts of the park had less snow from a warm, dry winter, and it was harder to see the wolves in the patchy brown and green of the trees. This shot was the result of a little luck, but mostly relentless searching for the right pack in the right photo conditions. The payoff was worth the time put in!

Or biking through ice caves.

Take a hike to the top of the peaks.

And ski back down.

Everywhere you turn, you can take amazing photographs.

Of flowers and natureโ€ฆ

Or mountains.

Donโ€™t forget to take home some beautiful pieces by local artists.

No matter when you go, Anchorage is an absolutely stunning place to visit.
