A Journey in Alaska, Discover the Wonderful Place in the North Pole

“Freeze”, that is the word that would be imagined in our mind when we hearing about “Alaska”. A territory in the North Pole where covered by snow that very thick and cold as a stone indeed. Half of the Alaska’s territory is covered by coating of ice. In half of a year, the temperature of this territory is below the zero degrees Celsius. In the winter, even the sun is almost unseen for a few days. Conversely, the sun is seen about 20 hours in the summer. The summer is between May until September. Gradually, the temperature is increasing, from 13 – 21 degrees Celsius. The top of the temperature is happened in July.

Alaska is the 49th state of the United States of America. Alaska is situated in the northwest of the North American continent. The landmass of Alaska was about 1.500.000 kilometers square, with the water area about 117.000 kilometers square. And it’s become the largest state in the United States of America.

Alaska is the place to discover the different nature in the world. Snow, iceberg, and tundra are a few things that we can see in Alaska. In large measure, the forest and the mountains it is a wild life. Therefore, the tourists who visit to Alaska would discover the nature view, and also would be seeing some of fauna, like polar bear, grizzly bear, polar deer, eagle, salmon, sea lion, orca, and whale.

The history of Alaska was begin from the moleskin trade, felling of trees, salmon fishing, gold mining, and  massive reserves of crude oil. Since 1900, Juneau, a region where situated about 965 kilometers from Anchorage and 1448 kilometers from Seattle was becomes the Capital. Although, Juneau is the Capital of Alaska State, but Anchorage is the largest city and the city becomes the main gate to Alaska.

The journey in Alaska would be interesting if the tourist follow the shore excursion and sea excursion (cruise). The shore excursion package would be done for five days. The journey has started by bus and tramcar with the glass roof. So, we can to enjoy the view along the journey. This journey becomes more impressive because we lodging in wooden house. All of the lodging for the night and the transportation has managed by the tourist organization that we choose. In the journey we would see the gold mining and enjoy the nature view.

In Alaska, we would also see the Mount McKinley or called “Denali”, the highest and famous mount in United States of America. The summit elevation of Mount McKinley is about 6194 meters above the sea level. Mount McKinley is located in Denali National Park and Preserve. Although the weather of the mountain is extremely cold, but there are many mountaineer come here to climb up the mount.

Several places in Alaska only can be visited by cruise the sea. Other than the air way, sea transport is dominating enough. There are so many Cruisers sailing the sea. The cruisers is able to carry 2500 passengers or thereabouts. The cruising time was about seven days.  There are so many activities to do during the cruising, like swimming, fitness, watching cabaret and film, or make a personal activity.

There are many of glaciers in Alaska. The glaciers have various shapes. And have different names, according to the discoverer’s name. Like College Fjord Glacier, this glacier is melt down like ice cream. Also there Hubbard Glacier, this glacier is pointed in the top. Sometimes, we also see the glacier was sliding. Nowadays, the glaciers are melting down often. This situation is regrettable. This matter is caused by the people, who are not being responsible to the nature, that cause the global warming. So, as the human, we have to care about the nature and save the earth.

The cruiser would be at anchor in Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan. The passengers can to enjoy the additional tour. The interesting experience is seeing orca and whale in their habitat in the sea. The tourist can see Humpback whale and killer whale (Orca). Can be imagined, the whales appear to the surface and splashing. This interesting experience is so amazing.

So, that is the story from Alaska. This amazing and beautiful place has visited by the people from all over the world. In a certain time, we could be seeing aurora that absolutely wonderful. There are many more story that so interesting from Alaska. Alaska becomes the place for the people who want to know much about the wonderful things in the North Pole.

  13. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
