Greetings from Alaska!
Alaska is big, and it is filled with big things, like mountains and glaciers and rivers, and there is room for only one photograph, so I chose this view of mountains with glaciers on Thompson Pass, heading into Valdez.
But, could I live there? - I am a sucker for late twilights, and Alaska has the latest. This is a beautiful, beautiful place to spend summers, but I don't know about winters (though they say that Valdez is relatively mild - to an Alaskan.)
