About alaskaoutmydoor

Alaska out my front door is my first Blog! As a lifelong Alaskan I hope to show you what life in Alaska is like and expose you to things, like our weather, which is changing, our traditions like having king crab at Christmas and calling it the “the lower 48” when we speak of the rest of the USA, and a few others as they are brought to my attention and some things that make life in Alaska more bearable on those days that it is too yucky to go outside or when there is adventure to be had, like a road trip or Fishing, along the way I will show you parts of South Central Alaska, which is where I live it, is the most populated region of Alaska, containing Anchorage, the Matanuska - Susitna Valley ( Home) and the Kenai Peninsula, home of King Salmon, and Rural, mostly unpopulated areas south of the Alaska Range and west of the Wrangell Mountains also fall within the definition of South Central, as do the Prince William Sound area and the communities Whittier, Cordova and Valdez all of which boast exceptional fishing ,hunting, Hiking and a host of other fun outdoor activities and places to go visit. I hope you enjoy my Blog and please feel free to share and connect with me and if you need information or have a question about Alaska then I'm your girl. Enjoy :)
