So when I get to planning a vacation that is going to be incredible, I go a little overboard on information gathering. So what better way to write my blog post for the day is to share the stuff I've learned.
Juneau is the only state capital that has no roads leading to it. You can only get there by boat or plane.
There are no penguins in Alaska.
There are few rental car places in Alaska. Of course when you don't have a lot of roads, you don't need a lot of rental cars.
There are only a limited number of ships that are allowed to go into Glacier Bay National Park. We chose one of those cruise lines! :)
The Iditarod Dog Race was initially done to bring vaccinations for children to prevent a diphtheria outbreak.
When a glacier breaks apart and falls into the water, that is called calving.
And so there is today's knowledge about Alaska.
