OK, yep I'm from the lower 48, and planning my first trip to alaska. I'm looking for some advice on some good hikes while I'm there. I intend to camp, so june/july is my intended time frame. I'd like to see some spots that will be away from the typical tourist crowds, and I will be traveling with my dog (australian cattle dog, used to backpacking). I plan on being in the south (Anchorage area) but I will go anywhere for someplace unique. As for my info, I have a 4WD jeep wrangler (that I don't mind getting dirty) and am reasonably capable/familiar with backcountry hiking (at least down here), I'm in shape, early 30s, and both realistic with my abilities and familiar with what it takes to be out for a while (at least down here). I would like to do several three/four day trips while I'm there, and I would love some local advice on places I can see (with my dog) that I won't have to run into crowds. If you don't want to make your advice public, I will respect that, and would love to hear via email or PM any good spots. I'm not particular on what kind of places, just looking for something off the beaten path where i can take some good photos and enjoy my time. Any advice or tips would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, christian.
