What comes to mind when you think of alaska?

I have been living in Alaska all my life and was born here. And its crazy to me some of the things people think about Alaska. But I love hearing it. So what do you envision Alaska and its people are like?

  • Big. Cold. Snow. Denali. Alpine meadows / lakes. Oil. Gold. Alaska Highway (to get there). Iditarod.

    Throw in fishing. Both fresh water and commercial fishing. If I go to Alaska I'm bringing my fishing gear and backpack. :)

  • Cold, the year transitioning from 24 hours of daylight to 24 hours of darkness extremes, I was told there's like several times more men there but I just looked that up and that's not true, big mosquitoes in summer

  • Do you live in a city? Then it's like living in a small city in Canada, except with a harsher winter.

    Now, if you live out in the wilderness and trap for a living, then it might be a bit more like Yukon Men on Discovery Channel.

    But seriously, it's like living in the countryside anywhere else in North America, just with a more extreme climate (including summer).

  • I think about all the amazing wildlife. I love seeing those nature shows that show the grizzly bears catching salmon when the salmon start to run upstream. I would love to visit Alaska some day.

  • They cut you a check just to live there. That is an indicator of how enjoyable it is to be there lol.

  • I think like, the major cities will still look kinda rural maybe, i can only compare it to a city in my state (flagstaff) maybe a lot of oil fields like on the simpsons, maybe a lot of mountains and grass but also cloudy as fuck, also melting glaciers
