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.

8. The Glenn Highway-Scenic Highways Series
If a trip to Alaska has you building your own itinerary, you will more than likely fly into Anchorage. There is plenty to do in this bustling city, but once you’ve rented your car or RV and are ready to hit the road, you can start out by heading north on the Glenn Highway.

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.

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.
