  1. Why did you choose to go to Alaska?

I have always wanted to see Alaska so when my friend, Greg (in the photo above) was planning a trip for his 30th birthday I jumped at the opportunity to tag along.

  1. Who did you travel with?

My best friend since childhood. Throughout his 20’s he had challenged himself to visit all fifty states before his 30th birthday. With forty nine states in tow, Alaska would be his finish line.

  1. What surprised you most about Alaska?

Between the sun never fully setting and the cinematic sprawl of the landscape, Alaska took on a sort of otherworldliness that I couldn’t possibly have anticipated.Gorgeous landscapes in Alaska, in ManAboutWorld gay travel magazine

  1. Favorite moment was…

When hiking in Denali national park on the Mt. Healy Overlook Trail we came across a moose wandering nearby. Before it noticed us and ran off, we stood still and quiet, awestruck by its towering grandeur.

  1. Best time to go to Alaska

I think the best time might be late August when the weather is still on the warmer side, the tourism season hasn’t come to a close, and the Northern lights make an occasional appearance.

  1. Gay factor

From hiking, canoeing, and camping to whitewater rafting or just enjoying a fresh caught salmon, Alaska has many opportunities for male bonding and rugged adventure.
