Alaska

Grizzly Bear Stance

Alaska is the largest state of the United States by area; it is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Approximately half of Alaska's residents live within the Anchorage metropolitan area, making it the least densely populated state of the U.S.  Alaska has a longer coastline than all the other U.S. states combined. With its myriad islands, it has almost 34,000 miles of tidal shoreline. One of the world's largest tides occurs in Turnagain Arm, just south of Anchorage – tidal differences can be more than 35 feet. The state has more than three million lakes and marshlands and wetland permafrost cover 188,320 square miles, while glacier ice covers some 16,000 square miles of land and 1,200 square miles of tidal zone. With over 100,000 glaciers, Alaska is home to half of the world's glaciers.
