A Day into the Wild

Discovering Alaska

 

When nature is involved there is no much left to say because the views speak for themselves. Alaska is heaven for those who love to be outdoors and know to appreciate the power of wilderness. Whether you are a long racer or not, here you can find a trail for your will. The one thing you should keep in mind at all time is to be aware of the wild life. While you are hiking in Alaska, there is a slight chance to say “Hi” to brother bear. Since I moved to Alaska I haven’t come across any bear, luckily, but I have seen moose several times and not far from residential area. So, when you plan your hiking trip it is highly recommended to get a Bear Spray, which you might need for when you will come across one. Here you can read what to do and how to act if you meet a bear in the wilderness. A utility knife can be useful if you go hiking more than a day, you know for that “just in case” scenario. Other essentials that you might consider taking are sun protection, first aid kit, flashlight, navigation (map, compass), a waterproof jacket, and of course food supplies and plenty of water. With this being said, let me introduce you to a place that reminded me of my childhood summers over my grandma’s, when I used to run in the forests and spend hours and hours by the river. And no, not because of the views, but because of the air itself.. so fresh and invigorating. So, this is the 3.4 miles Carter Lake trail. The pathway is covered in wildflowers and has some astonishing views. This is a perfect trail for one day hiking and the 3.4 mile show a magnificent sight over the Crescent lake. Alright, I think is enough of blah blah…let’s move on  to picture 🙂

 See you soon,
