Back on July 20, 2010, I found this little chalet while walking in a small neighborhood in Wasilla, Alaska. I remember really liking the A-frame style, and also the 1-car, 1-snowmobile (snowmachine) garage.

The sign pretty much says it all: Cheap beer, lousy food. This sign is from a restaurant in Seward, Alaska.
One of the tremendous views from the long bike and walking path in Palmer, Alaska. The Boulder, Colorado area is great, but there’s something about being in Alaska, where the population density is about 1/10th or 1/100th of what it is here that’s really wonderful.
One of my favorite road signs in Alaska - “Caution: Yield to All Aircraft.” Seems like great advice. You can find this sign somewhere around Lake Hood, in Anchorage, Alaska.
