Amble Through the Amazing State of Alaska

Breathtaking, rugged, thrilling, and even dangerous have been used to describe the geography, people, and cultures in Alaska. A visit to the state inevitably offers memorable experiences. Perhaps a moose strolling through streets beside a mall in one of the major cities will give you a surprise that makes you smile (but be careful!), or maybe watching a mother and baby caribou heroically swimming across a wide, furious expanse of the Kenai River will take your breath away (yes, they made it!).

In Alaska, there’s no telling what will happen next. Up for some volcanic action or possibly a bit of earthquake activity? This, then, is the place for you, but all that gives plenty of people pause for thought before deciding to visit or move there. Still, pictures simply can’t do the landscape and people justice. They only give us, well, part of the picture.

The more you know, the more you want to know about The Last Frontier. Use this quiz to refresh your memory if you’ve visited there or to learn about the place that most want to visit whether they ever actually do it or just dream of it. Have fun and let us know in the comments below which category you are in.

  1. One of the reasons for the giant cabbage and stuff from Fairbanks is the photosynthesis boost factor. The long days have them basking in the sun for as long as twenty hours a day.
    I got 7 of 14 but I was sloppy and missed some “all of the above” by checking the first answer. When I visited there I saw some ginormous veggies and they looked a bit surreal.

    • Yes, the long summer days seem to make up for a short growing season in a magnificent manner! I’m already thinking that the all of above might not be the best option for creating quizzes in this online setting where people are moving quickly through the posts they choose to look at. Thanks for the feedback on this quiz!
