The New Adventure Frontier
An isolated wilderness, Alaska is home to some of the world’s largest national parks and most pristine natural beauty, and it beckons as an adventure destination for those willing to forge through its wild terrain. By Austin Mann and Haley Beham
This past June, travel photographer Austin Mann explored the raw nature of Alaska, armed with his Sony A9, iPhone 7 Plus and the new Apple iPad Pro 10.5. Mann stayed at the remote Winterlake Lodge, accessible via floatplane or helicopter or dog sled, and its sister property, Tutka Bay Lodge, which is accessible primarily by boat. Both properties are family owned and you can feel it in the details and care taken by the staff. Because of their remote setting, the staff is more like family, and guests are treated like family, too. Here, Austin shares his journey in his own words.
Pro Tip! Layer up for a busy day of hiking in the wilderness. The mornings are chilly, but afternoons are comfortable. -Catherine Brown, Luxury Travel Expert
