Default You know your in Alaska when,

You can catch over 50 Salmon in an hour.
You think of changing your name to “Dances with Halibut”.
The local Jazz/Rock concert is sung in Alutiiq.
You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a coffee house.
You fight to get your salmon out of the stream then fight to keep your salmon away from the bears.
When you go hiking you reenter the food chain.
You never see the predicted high temperature. Try mid. 50’s.

There is still snow on the mountains. Water temp 38 degrees.

After a few days, everything you own starts to smell like fish. And nobody notices.

When you go hiking you reenter the food chain.
...and you ain't reentering it at the top.


Alaska is home to one of the very few critters on the face of this planet that really does view people as 'food', the polar bear. The only other animals that I am aware of that actually look for people as food are alligators/crocodiles and great while sharks.
