For those with a naturalist streak, few places on earth compare with the wonders of Southwest Alaska. Brown bears amble along the hills and plains, and more than 240 bird species inhabit Alaska’s Southwest region. The region’s terrain ranges from a landscape of volcanoes in Katmai National Park created by the 1912 eruption of the Novarupta volcano, to the windswept Aleutian Islands that make a 1,000-mile sweep toward Asia.

Everywhere you look, you'll see a living postcard.  Alaska is incredibly beautiful!  I live in beautiful Arizona, but I haven't been able to get Alaska out of my mind.  Everyone should see Alaska at least once.
