Continuando a série de posts sobre os estados americanos, hoje falarei sobre o Alasca.
If you think about a very cold place you may come up with the word ALASKA. The weather is so cold there that in 1971 it was rated -62º C. The average goes from 8ºC when it is “hot” and easily -50º C when it is cold (freezing cold to be honest). Alaska is also the state that has one of the lowest number of people living there and the largest state in the country.
It’s capital is Jeneau and the biggest city there is Anchorage. There are plenty of animals in the state too, normally ones that are able to stand the low temperatures.
Alaska has the highest mountain peak in the North America, the Monte McKinley or Denali. It has the elevation of 6,168 m of the sea level. The water in the Cook Inlet is pure and unique. The leaves change their color when the Fall arrives. They turn into golden, reddish, brownish, yellowish.. so beautiful!
The state is also known for the Northern Lights, which is created due to the high energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude.
There is the Rasmuson Museum in Anchorage that has a great part of the culture and history of the state.
Do you want to see some more stunning sights? Take the Alaska and Seward Highway. They both display a big range of amazing sights along the way.
In the winter, snow sports are the top ones and there are a lot of contests related to them. Another option is to stay at the Chena Hot Springs Resort to see the Northern Lights. They even have a service which let you know when the event is happening so you can enjoy all of it.
