My Next Adventure and 13 Weird Alaska Facts

Arizona was the 48th state to be added to the union, so you could say Alaska (the 49th state) is like Arizona’s baby brother. It’s located so far away though from the Lower 48 that it definitely has its own identity. Alaskans have a lot of pride in their big state and I am excited to be exploring a small chunk…

Discover The Forest

How often do you go outside and explore the nature near you? We really enjoy exploring actual forest areas because they are so different from the desert we live in.
