In Alaska’s heartland, you’ll see the continent’s tallest peak, Mt. McKinley, and wide expanses of tundra. The forests are teeming with wildlife and bird life ranging from the formidable grizzly to stately herds of caribou to the state bird, the Willow Ptarmigan. Experience summer’s midnight sun or the winter’s northern lights. Wildlife can be seen on the highway that runs by Denali National Park, carrying visitors to and from Anchorage and Fairbanks. Interior is the original home of Alaska’s Athabascan Indians. Gold miners, farmers and fur trappers later discovered the riches of this region.

Visitor Comments

It's been 26 years since I traveled to Alaska as a visitor because I stayed after my first visit in 1980. My husband and I fell in love so completely with Alaska that we stayed and lived there for more than 23 years. The only reason we moved back to Texas was to take care of my Mother who is elderly and ill. If there was any reasonably inexpensive way to move her to Alaska, we would have never left there. Alaska has the most beautiful landscapes, scenery, etc., but the one thing that made us fall in love with it was the people. We felt as if we had stepped back in time to the year when everybody loved their neighbors and helped them without asking. I'm sure this space isn't nearly big enough to tell you all the things we loved about Alaska, but if you will send me a letter of interest, I will write you a short story about "OUR ALASKA". Thank you, LaPrincess & Edward Halleck (formerly of the Fairbanks North Star Borough)
