One word describes Alaska and that is "BIG!" This not only describes the state but the climbs that are in it. From the single pitch climbs along the Seward Highway to Denali the tallest mountain in North America, Alaska has something to offer everyone. Weather in Alaska can change very quickly. Alaska receives warm weather currents from Japan as well as cold weather currents from the Artic Circle. When the two collide it tends to get nasty!
You can get to Alaska by plane, train or automobile. Alaskans are very friendly and will give you directions if you get lost or confused.

In addition to the above information on Alaska:
-You can also get there by boat. The Alaska Marine Highway leaves Seattle area (Bellingham) for most of the Southeast Alaska towns and up towards Anchorage. You can get a stateroom or pitch your tent on the solarium.
- Alaskans are very friendly and will give directions, as indicated in the above description. However, don't expect street names or street numbers. Be prepared for directions such as, "follow this here dirt road for about 5 minutes. Take a hard right after the large spruce tree. In about 4 minutes you will see a large black rock. Turn left here and heep going until..."
-Tourism is one of the main industries in Alaska. If you are looking for a true Alaskan experience, don't get caught up in the tourist traps. Where there are cruise ships, there are tourist traps.
