Alaska is a land of enormous proportions, a fifth the size of the USA, but with a population is far less than one milion. Most of the state is made of wild mountains, glaciers, and rivers, many of them are preserved in eight National Parks of a scale difficult to imagine. Over the course of three summers, I explored some of those wilderness areas by foot and paddle. Most those trips required the use of elaborate logistics to access remote areas.
