You’ll find that Alaska is different. It feels different. The seasons—and how people respond to them—don’t really progress in the same way they do in the rest of the country.
Depending on the time of year and locale, Alaska is lighter. It’s darker. It’s colder. It’s wetter. It’s snowier. And even if it isn’t hotter (you can’t have everything!) it’s definitely greener.
Alaska can be as lush as a jungle. Or as severe as a desert. It just depends upon the time of year.
