Here are the top ten articles for the Alaska Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

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. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

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. 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.

7. The Seward Highway-Scenic Highways Series
The 127 mile Seward Highway is not only a designated Alaska Scenic Byway, but it's so beautiful it also is designated as a USDA Forest Service Scenic Byway, and All-American Road.

8. 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.

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

10. 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.
