Immaculate Wilderness Spots in Alaska

Let me introduce my favourite state in the United States of America. Mainly because it’s famous for its delicious tasty sourdough. And I mean, who doesn’t like good sourdough? Anyway, I’m talking about Alaska if you didn’t read the title. Alaska is the most northern state of North America. It’s known as “The Last Frontier” as it shares a sea border with Russia to the west.

Besides the sourdough (which is obviously really important), Alaska’s wildlife is a great tourist attraction. In fact, people travel from around the world to see Alaska’s Big Five. The Alaskan Big Five are the bear, moose, Dall sheep, wolf, and caribou. All the other wildlife is just as special for their rarity. With that said, come along as we discover Alaska’s immaculate wilderness spots.
