National Alaska Day
On June 28th, National Alaska Day recognizes the largest state to join the union and the Nation’s Last Frontier.

In 1925, he along with several other mushers delivered much-needed anti-diphtheria serum to Nome. The immense Denali National Park and Preserve is home to glaciers, fossil records, and a study in geology. All along the Alaska Range, the pristine wilderness provides hikers the most well-marked trails outstanding views and peaceful vistas.
