Sea Day/Interesting Information on Alaska

Aloha Everyone,

Alaska is the largest state by area. But it is the 3rd least populous out of 50.

Alaska has a land border with Canada and a maritime border with Russia

Alaska has more than 3,000 rivers and 3 million lakes. More than half the world’s glaciers are in Alaska.

Alaska has more coastline than the rest of the United States combined. Alaska also has more inland waters than any other state.

Alaska's economy is dominated by fishing, natural gas, oil and mineral resources. Most of America’s salmon, crab, halibut and herring come from Alaska.

Alaska’s Iditarod Trail known as the Seward-to-Nome Trail covers a thousand plus miles. The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race commemorates the role dog sleds played in the development of Alaska, and the delivery of vaccine to Nome during an epidemic.

Aloha -- Cathi
