I’ve been to Alaska twice. Both times I was there for the fishing and to shoot photographs for work. Both times all I wanted to do was get back in the airplane or helicopter that was providing me transport and just keep flying. Don’t get me wrong, the fishing was amazing, but there’s nothing like flying a few hundred feet above the Alaskan wilderness in an fixed-wing aircraft with the windows down or a helicopter with the doors off. It’s spectacular country that words and photos can’t do justice. Here are 48 images that at least attempt to show you the last frontier from a bird’s eye view. Enjoy.
