Hiking is Great in Alaska

Guest post written by my buddy Aldo Mays

Alaska is a great place to go hiking in. There are countless trails in the woods around the main cities that are great for this. If people wish they can also go and travel to the countless mountain ranges in the state that offer massive amounts of hiking experiences. There is nothing better then packing up for a trip, setting the home security devices, and then embarking out on a journey for a day or more.

Flattop is a mountain that is very famous in Alaska not only for its popularity with hiking, but because the top of it is completely flat. This mountain is so famous here that sometimes events are held at the top of it for certain things such as concerts or special occasion. There have also been times when fireworks were set off safely on the mountain.

Camping on Flattop is something very fun to do as well because it gives an excellent view of the entire city of Anchorage and the surrounding area. The ocean seems vast when looked upon from Flattop, and the city of Anchorage itself seems very small, but beautiful. This is a very popular spot for tourists who visit Anchorage because it is one of the easier hikes and there are many places to rest along the way. Even when raining outside, this mountain is a very fun place to go.
