FYI – There are NO penguins in Alaska!
Our winters are long – coping with the elements is sometimes challenging!
(Winter…NO comment necessary?!)
Summer daylight IS about 20 hours a day in the Anchorage area in June – 4 hours of dusk
(and 24 hours of daylight DOES occur further north during the summer solstice)
There IS a North Pole, Alaska – about 40 miles north of Fairbanks
(there is a ‘Santa Claus’ House up there, too – a tourist stop for “Outsiders”)
Take Grandma and buy souveniers…
There are only two main roads in Alaska – one north, one south
“The Igloo House” – near Fairbanks. Intended as a hotel, now vacant
Eskimo & Indian cultures are NOT to be confused with one another
Picnic Season is Short……………Rock Slides Happen…….Alaskans LOVE Ice Cream – summer OR winter!
