"Land of the Midnight Sun" isn't just a clever term. Summers in the Interior can have up to 24 hours of daylight. Sometimes visitors can have a problem adjusting to the extended hours of daylight. Remember that even though it's bright outside, it can still be 11 p.m. - so don't forget to sleep. And if you have problems sleeping when it's light outside, you'll want to bring along a sleeping mask.
