Go beyond the cruise experience and get a taste of the adventures that are possible in Alaska. After spending the 2016 summer traveling in his pickup and trailer, Kirby Flanagan, a professional wildlife and landscape photographer, will share his photos and experiences from there. Some of the highlights are Homer, Kachemak Bay, Katmai, Seward, Denali, Haines and Hyder and two previous visits, which were trips to Glacier Bay and the bear refuges at Anan Creek and Pack Creek. He'll also discuss how to plan your trip, getting there, traveling around the state, and how to best spend your time and money.
