ManAboutWorld photo editor Dillon Davis is was in Alaska this summer on a “bro-cation” and brought back this photo update.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
