It’s true what they say about Alaska: everything seems larger than life. As the largest state with millions
of acres of wilderness, Alaska certainly has stunning geography. The state is home to over three million lakes,
Mt. Denali, the largest peak in the US, an estimated 100,000 glaciers, and Tongass National Forest, the largest
national forest in the country. There is also an abundance of wildlife including bears, caribou, moose, wolves,
and whales. And the northern lights are amazing. Presented here are several images taken during recent visits.
Notice how white dominates most of the scenes. Photographers seek to capture the nuances in the shades of white.
Another common element is the contrast between the clear blue sky and whiteness of the surrounding scenery. Enjoy.
How to get there:
From the US, visitors can access Alaska by ship, air and highway. Most of the major Airlines fly to Anchorage,
Fairbanks and Juneau which are major ports of entry. Fairbanks is the major hub for the interior region. Juneau
is the major hub for the coastal region. The airlines offer service to smaller regional airports around the state.
