Our oldest son, Mardy, was up in Anchorage for 7 yrs with the Air Force, retired, came to NC in 2003 and just went back to work for Shell Oil in 2014 and is coming back in Oct. I've been up there 3 or 4 times both in the winter, summer and last Labor Day. Scenery is absolutely breathtaking. I think I could live there, but TOWTA says "Absolutely NOT". Went 'snow machining' one winter and it is unbelievable. The lower 48 has nothing even close as far as snow machining or scenery.

Welcome to the forum from Missouri! We lived in Anchorage in the 90s and did a lot of camping with the 32' travel trailer we towed up. Miss the salmon fishing! There are many beautiful areas in the lower 48 to explore and if you are here during the winter, the northern tier states have some of the best snowmobiling areas!

Agree, been in 49 of the 50 and AK has to be No.1 for scenery!

I must admit there's not allot to do in the winter unless your into snow sports (hockey, ice fishing. smowmaching. etc.) I sure miss snowmaching though. Haven't been in 3 years due to lack of snow.

Hello Pennsylvania. My wife's grandma had a cabin there and someday she wants to go back and see it. Her uncle is in charge of it now. Not sure exactly where it is although she really raves about it.
