Something you might hear a Greatlander say: "You can have whatever you want for dinner: king salmon, pink salmon, chum salmon, silver salmon, sockeye salmon, or moose."
(The types of salmon all have other names; see SALMON.)

Little Known Factoid: Prolonged exposure to the elements . . .

If I could live anywhere in Alaska, it would be in Skagway, because I like its natural beauty and the frontier feel.
