Two Street Gallery is hosting Mollie Foster and her book “Hiking Alaska” First Friday, August 4th, from 5 – 8 pm.
Mollie Foster, author of the new book “Hiking Alaska: A Guide to Alaska’s Greatest Hiking Adventures” will be on hand to sign copies and to answer questions about all of the hiking routes and trails that are featured in her new book. Routes and trails for all ages are featured.
Foster is an Alaska-based editor, photographer, and writer. She is passionate about storytelling, specializing in outdoor lifestyle and adventure. She came to Alaska in 2009 for a photography job for a summer. One summer in Denali spiraled into the next, and summers spun into winters, and before she knew it, she had become a year-round Alaskan. Her work experience in this wild landscape includes: directing and guiding week-long educational programs, guiding small-group photography courses, photographing river rafting adventures, and writing/photographing stories for a range of media outlets across Alaska including Alaska Magazine.
“I spend most of my time exploring Alaska by human power—biking, hiking, skiing and pack-rafting—always with a camera in hand to document experiences along the journey. Everyday I feel lucky to witness this untamed frontier, and love learning about its natural history, culture and impacts on the future. Alaska’s wild landscape has a way of grabbing you in a way few other places do, and I look forward to sharing those elements that make this environment so captivating.”
This guide is the perfect introduction to hiking the great state of Alaska, with millions of acres of wilderness waiting to be explored. It features one hundred hikes in Alaska’s national parks, wildlife refuges, national forests, wilderness areas, and state parks. Also included are hikes for all ages and abilities as well as maps for each hike and full-color photos.
