2. Breakup In Alaska
What is the big deal about spring breakup in Alaska? The days get longer, the snow melts, the ice moves on out to sea. No big deal, right? Wrong.
3. Totem Poles
Itís 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 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 Alaskaís entire coastline.

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. Reasons to Visit Alaska
Maybe you haven't been able to come up with enough reasons to visit Alaska. While I personally find that impossible to imagine, I thought I'd help out. Here's just a few for you to ponder.
10. Mighty Yukon River
Almost 2000 miles long from its beginning in the Yukon Territory, stretching across the state of Alaska, through the Yukon Flats in the east, the mountains across the center, the Yukon Delta in the west, finally reaching its destination in the Bering Sea, the Yukon River is certainly mighty.
