Alaska is Chilly Dec 06, 2008
Alaska is Beautiful beyond belief, but you will enjoy taking all those outdoor pictures more if you pack warmer clothes. Those of us from the lower 48 get cold in our regular summer clothing. So pack for fall or spring. Long sleeves, Jeans, and jackets are a must for this picture/postcard state.(visited there 6/20/08-7/1/08)
