We're going to visit the biggest cities in Alaska
. A trip through unique parks and natural areas is planned
. We will experience the beauty and power of nature in these places.
Probably, many of us, having got used to life in comfortable and warm latitudes, with suspicion look at possibility of travel to such severe region, as Alaska. But having come a long way between the largest cities of this state and got acquainted with the incredible nature of these places, I can confidently say that such fears are groundless. And it is not important to go there in winter or summer, because if properly equipped and prepared, you can enjoy a trip to this unique region without any problems, because the temperature at the height of the winter season here ranges from -12 to -5 degrees Celsius.
Our route has begun in the state capital, Anchorage. First we went to Chugach State Park, and then left the city and headed for Fairbanks, on the way to Denali State Park. On our way we saw the most beautiful landscapes of mountains, fields, forests and rivers. Alaska's flora is very diverse, so once you get here in the summer, you'll be able to catch the flowering of various plants. Also, the region is very popular with fans of active recreation and fishing, so going on the road, it is worth thinking in advance what equipment to take with you.
