Alaska in just a few words…

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

The word “Alaska” conjures up many thoughts to many people.  To the uninformed it can mean “eskimo”, “snow”, “ice” and “wilderness”.  To the couch potato, it probably means something like “Deadliest Catch” or “Sarah Palin”.   To the adventurer, it means “exploration”, “extreme”, “uncharted” and “vast”.  For the true Alaska enthusiast, however, the best words to use can only be emitted after you actually experience it. 

There are many general terms that are used to promote the idea of Alaska: “Mother Nature’s Showcase” and “The Last Frontier”are common catchphrases aimed at capturing an immeasurable amount of beauty, nature and charm in just a few words.  We like to use the words “amazing” (for obvious reasons), “majestic”, “uncharted” and “unpredictable”.

No matter what words one can use to describe what Alaska is, or means to them, the old adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words” is the only just way to express how special our 49th state really is. That is, short of going there and seeing for yourself.

So, without further adieu….a thousand words:
