1. 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.

2. The Potlatch Ceremony

3. Coast Guard Alaska - TV Show Review
Coast Guard Alaska is a real telling of the day to day activities of the Coast Guard unit stationed at Kodiak, Alaska. Hosted by the Weather Channel, this seven part series is repeated often enough for your DVR to catch it.

4. Cold Hands, Warm Heart by Jeff King - Book Review
Jeff King, four-time Iditarod Sled Dog Race Champion, shares his life and his adventures in this charming book. Illustrated by Jeff's wife, Donna, a talented landscape and wildlife artist in her own right. If you weren't a fan before reading this book, you will be by the time you are done.

5. Iditarod Fun Facts
The Alaska Iditarod is full of history, competition, and dogs!

6. Fun Facts on Alaska
Just some fun facts with a bit of my humor mixed in!

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. Wild Salmon on Parade!
Wild Salmon on Parade is an annual display of artistically painted, wildly decorated sculptural fish forms celebrating Alaska's thriving wild salmon industry and summer in Alaska! These great pieces of art are the size of a real King salmon and can be seen throughout downtown Anchorage each summer.
