Freezing Cold

The cold in Cairo seemed to be getting better and I had almost packed the room/space heaters up to put them in and then suddenly the cold struck again and it is impossible to even wash ones hands without turning out the water heaters.

Which got me thinking about Alaska. What would it be like to live there? What would it be like to Travel Alaska?

This American state situated at the Northwest tip of North America sees temperatures as low as -52C (-60F). But there is something exciting and adventurous about traveling here, given its remoteness, extreme temperatures and fantastic tales read and heard about eskimos and bears. The all combine to make Alaska Travel sound like an adventure of a lifetime. Especially now that we have sailed the Nile and dived the Red Sea.

Denali Park is home to a huge variety of Alaskan birds and mammals, including grizzly and black bears. Caribou, Dall sheep, moose and gray wolves are just some of the animals you can expect to see here. f dens, both historic and active. The park is also well known for its bird population.

Think its worth a visit?

My brother-in-law is a big fan of Denali State Park in Alaska. He went there w/ his church group a few years back and fell in love! Not all of Alaska is cold all year round though. It has seasons just like much of the states. Sometimes reaching the 90's and 100's F! Much of the states is beautiful. Can you tell I'm missing it? I'm from Michigan. Another beautiful state! Alaska is definitely worth the investment in a trip. The cruises, I've heard, are amazing.

Love your news letter! Peace, Erin

I lived there for 8 years and I can't wait to go back to show my husband and kids how incredible the state is. I highly recommend going if you have the chance. Kristin
