阿拉斯加州 Alaska

 

阿拉斯加又被稱為是「美國的最後一道防線」,是美國政府於1867年以720萬美元向俄羅斯購得。最初,阿拉斯加只有希特卡為唯一有人居住的地方,美國將其畫做一特別行政區治理,直到1946年阿拉斯加建州運動越發熱烈,最終1958年時任美國總統的艾森豪總統宣布阿拉斯加建州,是為美國的第四十九州。

阿拉斯加州位在美國西北邊,隔著白令海峽與俄羅斯相望,是美國五十州中的最大一州,其面積可佔其餘四十九州相加起來的五分之一。阿拉斯加幅員廣闊,直逼國際換日線西側,為了不使一國境內有相差一天的窘境,國際換日線特別彎曲就為配合阿拉斯加的地形。而阿拉斯加也是美國唯一一個領土跨入東半球的州。

阿拉斯加是全美擁有私人飛機數量最高的州,此地的植物與水果可以生長到原先的兩倍之大,並且,麋鹿忽然闖入高爾夫球賽場阻斷賽事的情況也時有所聞。
 

America's last frontier!

The United States agreed to purchase Alaska from Russia for $7.2 million dollars on March 30, 1867, about two cents an acre; many called it "Seward's Folly" after Secretary of State William H. Seward. A check for $7,200,000.00 was issued on August 1, 1868 and made payable to Edouard de Stoeckl, the Russian Minister to the United States.

On January 3, 1959, Alaska, with a land mass larger than Texas, California and Montana combined, became the 49th state in the union. It is a large state, 1/5 the size of all the other states together, reaching so far to the west that the International Date Line had to be bent to keep all of the state in the same day. It's also the only U.S. state extending into the Eastern Hemisphere.

Alaska has the highest rate of private aircraft ownership in the whole nation. Despite the cold weather vegetables and fruit grow to two times their normal size elsewhere. Wild animals are often seen in the area, and moose interrupt golf games whenever they feel like it.
