I was on the internet getting some business taken care of the other night. I was trying to do some online banking, get caught up on the emails, pay some electric bills I got from Champion Energy Del-Valle and planning my trip to Alaska. Despite what I learned from Looney Tunes, a reputable source for all things scientific and cultural, Alaska was not the uninhabitable block of ice everyone made it out to be. In fact, when I did some searching, I found some truly remarkable destinations that I just had to share.
Denali National Park – Come to see the tallest mountain in North America and stay for the most diverse and majestic assembly of all of nature’s mountain creatures in one beautiful location.
Glacier Bay – I didn’t know what a fjord was until I saw this attraction. A fjord is like a canal or trench left by retreating glaciers and some of them are even wide enough to take a boat through giving you some great face-time with blocks of ice (glaciers, really) that are a lot older than civilization as a whole.
Kenai Fjords – Nestled deep in the space between massive, glacial bodies you will feel like you are in a veritable, frozen palace with icy walls reaching up all around you.
The Tongass National Forest – Great for a hike and even a good bike ride, these timber-producing woods provide quaint and pristine scenery showing you a side of nature and the wilderness many city slickers might not have known could exist.
