The most interesting thing about Alaska for me is the fact that there are so few people there and the land is for the most part unspoiled.  Vast expanses of mountains and valleys home to large populations of wild animals and plants of all sorts abound.  I have watched ALONE IN THE WILDERNESS several times and enjoyed it every time.  I imagine a small part of all of us would like to pit ourselves against the elements and experience unspoiled nature.  Richard Proenneke did just that for almost 30 years, all alone, doing a skillful job of living off the land and filming his life.  If you have not seen this I highly recommend it.
