Favorite thing: We entered the state of Alaska at the most northerly landbordercrossing of the USA: Pokercreek, AK. We got a nice stamp in our pasports, next to the official stamp there was a moose. The moose is the state mammal. Alaska is the most northerly state of the USA and the Alaskans call all other states lower 48, refering to 48 degrees north.
Alaska is the largest state of the USA. About 640,000 residents live on 570,374 sq miles of land, about one fifth of the area of the other USA states.
No wonder we felt alone much of the time.
