Alaska’s Highest Highway Passes
Located on the northwestern portion of the North American continent, Alaska is a state in the Western United States. It’s bordered only by Canada on the east and surrounded by oceans on three sides: Arctic Ocean to the North, Bering Sea to the West, and the Pacific Ocean to the South. It’s an extraordinarily beautiful place and with wide open spaces. It deserves its reputation for being cold. Much of the state is covered in a layer of permafrost—permanently frozen soil.
