Perhaps one of the most beautiful places on earth!
I traveled to Alaska in the summer of 2000 and look forward to returning i
n the future.
Alaska's Flag  by Marie Drake
Eight stars of gold on a field of blue —
Alaska's flag. May it mean to you
The blue of the sea, the evening sky,
The mountain lakes and the flowers nearby;
The gold of the early sourdough's dreams,
The precious gold of the hills and streams;
The brilliant stars in the northern sky,
The "Bear" — the "Dipper" — and, shining high,
The great North Star with its steady light,
Over land and sea a beacon bright.
Alaska's Flag — to Alaskans dear,
The simple flag of a last frontier.
