1. Wildflowers of Alaska
When thoughts turn to Alaska, glaciers, bears, and northern lights come to mind quickly. Wildflowers are probably not top on the list. However, there are hordes of beautiful wildflowers in Alaska and many are even edible.
2. Tourism Season
From the first of May to about the third week in September, Alaska adds over 1.5 million people to its shores. So where do you begin? Alaska has so many opportunities to enjoy its history, beauty and rich culture, how can you possibly narrow down all of the choices?
3. 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 Alaskaís entire coastline.
4. 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.
5. 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 Inside Passage Region of Alaska is a great area for discovering the significance and beauty of totem poles.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. Kennel Tours in Alaska
Watching the Iditarod for the first time, I've become seriously enamoured with the dogs and their mushers. If your trip to Alaska allows some free reign, consider working one of these kennel tours or adventures into your itinerary.
