ALASKA is the USA’s largest state and home to Denali, the highest peak in North America. To put this into perspective, the state has a longer coastline than all the other US states combined with a land area of 663,268 square miles. Alaska is huge in size but relatively unpopulated. With around half its population (735,000 people) living in the Anchorage area, that leaves a hell of a lot of uninhabited and remote wilderness. In 1867, the US bought Alaska from Russia for a paltry 7 million dollars… The steal of the millennium in my opinion.
