Parting Shots: Alaska Bro-cation

  1. Why Alaska?

I have always wanted to see this great state so when my friend, Greg (pictured above) decided to plan a trip for his 30th birthday I jumped at the opportunity to tag along.

  1. Who is Greg?

My best friend since childhood. During his 20’s he had challenged himself to visit all fifty states before his 30th birthday. With 49 states in tow, Alaska would be the last.

  1. What surprised you most about the state?

With the sun never fully setting and the theatrical 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.

15 Places To Travel in 2015: Alaska … Because RSVP Returns in 2015 with its 30th Anniversary Alaska cruise

For a traveler, Alaska can seem as unmanageable as it is beautiful. It’s a vast, sprawling, and utterly massive state; at more than 660,000 square miles, it’s bigger than Texas, California, and Montana combined. It has 15 national parks, a pretty but small capital city in Juneau, and some of the most wondrous vistas in the world So how do you do Alaska? The first thing you’ll need to accept is that you can’t do it all; you’re going to have to choose which side of Alaska you want to see. The mess of islands that comprises Southeastern Alaska is gorgeous and unique but perhaps better for a second visit. The most common way most travelers see Alaska is by cruise line. An Alaska Cruise is a trip of a lifetime, and if you go, the best time to do it is June through August, and we recommend choosing a small ship rather than a large one so that it’s easier to lose the crowds, escape the overdeveloped ports, and experience Alaska’s nature and wildlife in greater depth and relative peace.
