Alaska is over twice as big as Texas - yet it only has 770,000 people - compared to Texas' 25 million. It is a giant wealth of minerals. We purchased it from Russia for $7 million. What a bargain!
Look at the red area on the map. That is where we spent our week - on a ship cruising thru fjords. We visited three small towns - Juneau - Skagway - and Ketchikan. We visited during the best weather possible. I know as much about Alaska as someone would know about Florida after spending a week in Disneyworld.
