Here are the Editor's Picks articles for the Alaska Site! These are the top ten articles that your Alaska Editor feels are most important for you to read. Enjoy!
1. Aurora Borealis
The Aurora Borealis is an amazing sight to see. What causes it? How can we know when to look for it? Here is a simple explanation!
2. Iditarod-The Last Great Race
What exactly is the big deal about the Alaska Iditarod? Is it the purse that the winner takes home, the competitive sport of it, or that the mushers are just plain crazy? Personally, I think it’s all of the above!
3. Winters in Alaska
Alaska is a beautiful state. There are so many ways to see it. Cruise ship, train, helicopter, driving, boating, hiking, and camping all from late May to September. But what do you do in the winter? Believe it or not, you can do quite a bit.
4. American Bald Eagle in Alaska
For those of us in the United States, there is a certain draw to the American Bald Eagle. We are in awe of its size, its’ majesty, and its’ perseverance to survive. It is a visual, real parallel to our country’s existence and in many cases, personal existence.
5. Finding Bears in Alaska
So you want to see the bears of Alaska. This seems to be a great idea but the trick is how to do it safely. There is an abundance of bears and safe viewing areas to be found in Alaska.
6. Why Alaska?
What it is about Alaska? Many have asked the question. Why does this place draw hundreds of thousands, every year from May to September, for a glimpse of the majesty that is Alaska? What would draw YOU here?
7. Regions of Alaska
Alaska is roughly one-fifth of the size of The United States. So large in fact, discussions about it tend to revolve around what region something is located in. It is typically divided into 5 regions. This is just a brief glance into some of the characteristics of each.
8. Arctic Dance-Review
So much of what we know about Alaska, has been conveyed by outsiders. Those of us who visit, fall in love, and then cannot get enough. What is the draw? There are many answers, but I found the most compelling in reading Arctic Dance, The Mardy Murie Story.
9. Nature Touring in Alaska
Wouldn’t it be awesome to spend three weeks in June on an Alaskan Eco Tour? Mark Garland does just that, leading the tour. I interviewed Mark via email to gain some insight on his Alaskan tour. Here’s what I found out.
10. Meet Sarah from Alaska
This article is about a Great Horned Owl named Sarah, not about former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin! Through a program by the American Bald Eagle Foundation, I “adopted” Sarah.
