1. Oceans and Seas of Alaska
The coastline of the state of Alaska, including islands, bays, fjords and open ocean shores, stretches for over 44,000 miles. To put this into perspective; if someone were to walk one thousand miles per year, it would take more than forty-four YEARS to hike Alaska’s entire coastline.
2. Dutch Harbor, Alaska
Dutch Harbor; the busiest sea port in the entire United States, is also home to the crab boat fleet of the TV show "Deadliest Catch". Surrounded by spectacular volcanic mountains, Dutch Harbor sits on some of the richest fishing and crabbing grounds in the world.
3. Cold Day Murder - Book Review
A Cold Day for Murder. In the first of the Kate Shugak series by author Dana Stabenow, the stage is set to lure readers into great mysteries set in Alaska.
4. Totem Poles
It’s tough being low man on the totem pole. Or is it? Depending on the tradition of the native carving a particular pole, the bottom image may in fact be the most important. And not a man! The Inside Passage Region of Alaska is a great area for discovering the significance and beauty of totem poles.
5. Alaskan Jade
Jade Mountain, Alaska, is the source of the states gemstone, Jade. It is a beautiful dark green gemstone, but it's a little difficult to gather.
6. 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.
7. Fur Rondy!
Fur Rendezvous in Anchorage, Alaska is a city-wide party! With sports, food, carnival and dozens of activities, it breaks up the long, dark days of late winter with FUN, laughter, silliness and raucous, rollicking good times! This year, “Rondy” runs from 2/26 through 3/07/2010.
8. Kate Shugak Series-Review
Book number 18 in the Kate Shugak series by author Dana Stabenow of Homer Alaska has been published. I read through all of the previous books to be ready for the release of "Restless in the Grave". This is a great series of books that are a lot of fun to read.
9. TUNDRA, by Chad Carpenter - a book review
The world of newspaper comic strips changed forever when Chad Carpenter discovered his natural talent for art and comedy and combined them into the now well known and much loved “TUNDRA” comic strips.
10. Autumn in Alaska
Autumn in Alaska is a season of change. Golds and reds take over from the greens and blues of summer. Cool, crisp Fall rain, hunting season and the hint of termination dust replace sunshine, mosquitoes and summer fishing trips.
