It's February and time to get on our anoraks and move on to the next state - ALASKA. I guess Alabama and Alaska are about as different as you can get, at least as far as climate is concerned. The average temperature of Alabama is 65, Alaska's is 37 but Alaska is so big that it actually spans three climate zones.
Alaska is by far our largest state. Since it is located so far away and separated from the rest of the states it is not so obvious, but here superimposed on the rest of the states it is very clear just how big it is.
