Alaska has captured my heart because it’s a lot different from anywhere else in this world.
Describe just one of your favorite “Best Days” or “Most memorable experiences” in Alaska.
My most memorable experience in Alaska is probably walking in Eklutna when I was younger. Every weekend my grandparents … something that you don’t really forget. The lake—Eklutna Lake is really pretty. The views whether the weather was good or bad were always great. That’s just a special place for me.
