Transportation in Alaska and getting around

January 18, 2013 - 7:11 pm Comments Off on Transportation in Alaska and getting around

If you ever thought about visiting Alaska for the untouched nature, peace and
quiet, forget the car as the option as you won’t get far. There are not that
many roads and the road system goes mainly from Canada with the west side of
Alaska not having any roads at all and even the capital is not on the road map.
The railway system is constantly developing and offers the most amazing
sightseeing, if you travel in the daylight. The air transport takes you to the
most remote places but the best way to explore it, is by marine transport and
dogsleds.

Alaska, given the remoteness and the population, actually has rather few
exports worldwide in terms of people that made it more famous. They include
sports people like Carlos Boozer, Mario Chalmers and Trajan Langdon in the area
of basketball. Matt Carle, Ty Conklin, Scott Gomez and Nate Thompson in ice
hockey. Hollywood also got the taste of Alaskan talent with Irene Bedard, Ray
Mala and Don Simpson. Singers, songwriters, as well as rappers made their mark
in the music industry and only made their country more proud. With population
ever growing and Natives mixing with everyone else, it is only a matter of time
before exports are seen on a regular basis. You can read more on Alaska travel forum, where people discus different themes connected with Alaska.

Native Alaskans are divided in tribes that live in different regions of the state, like the Inuit, the Aleut and the Tlingit. The world of Native Alaskans has been greatly changed with the arrival of modern culture. The main quality that brings all these groups together is there common sense of independence. Alaskans are a tough people. They are self-reliant. While Alaska is the large state by land, it is the most sparsely populated. The native Alaskans adapted to the land. While the Eskimos have an Asian look, they have a unique physical type and are unrelated to any other race. (more…)
