The year is 1899, and a woman has decided to travel alone to Alaska to stake her claims for gold.
Winters in Alaska
Alaska is a beautiful state. There are so many ways to see it. Cruise ship, train, helicopter, driving, boating, hiking, and camping all from late May to September. But what do you do in the winter? Believe it or not, you can do quite a bit.
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.
What it is about Alaska? Many have asked the question. Why does this place draw hundreds of thousands, every year from May to September, for a glimpse of the majesty that is Alaska? What would draw YOU here?
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?
It’s 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.
Tongass National Forest
The Tongass National Forest is large. 16.9 million acres large. 80% of the Southeast or Inside Passage Region falls within the Tongass. It is the largest National Forest in the United States and the world’s largest temperate rainforest. That's large!
Tisha is the story of a 19 year old teacher, who goes to Chicken, Alaska to teach. A cheechako from the lower 48, the bets are running she won't last through the first cold snap of the winter. Tisha is stronger than she appears.
There's No Place Like Nome
What do you think of when you hear Nome Alaska? If you’re like the rest of us, you think cold, snow, and ice. You might think of gold. You probably think Iditarod. But have you ever thought birding? How about sea cruises? Gift shopping Native Alaskan art? How about swimming? Read on.
The Seward Highway-Scenic Highways Series
