Lake Clark

Remote with a healthy mix of beauty and danger, Lake Clark is in many ways emblematic of everything that Alaska has to offer to the outdoor enthusiast

This year’s Alaska trip starts with where last year’s failed: Lake Clark National Park

Only reachable by small bush plane or an extended boat trip, Lake Clark holds the distinction of being the 3rd least visited National Park in the Country. But don’t let that stat fool you- Lake Clark is absolutely incredible.

Within it’s 4 million+ acres of protected land, this Park features just about everything Alaska has to offer: massive glaciers, epic ice fields, vibrantly blue lakes, long-winding rivers, and of course, hundreds of fuzzy, cuddly Grizzly Bears.

Here are my photos from my recent trip:
