Casual Headbands Summer Series: Alaska!

This week's entry in The Internet's Greatest Feature takes us ONCE AGAIN to Sarah Palin's Alaska and this time to beautiful Glacier Bay National Park!


The Titanic was sunk by an iceberg

Did you know that no roads lead to the park and it is most easily reached by air travel? Did you also know that during some summers there are ferries to the small community of Gustavus or directly to the marina at Bartlett Cove? Did you also also know that despite the lack of roads, there are over 400,000 visitors each year most of whom arrive via cruise ship just like this casual documenter apparently did?

Did you know that wildlife in the area includes both grizzly and black bears, moose, sitka black-tailed deer, mountain goats, England plays Sweden today, dall sheep, LeBron James, Canada lynx, sea otters, I'd love to see France lose to Ukraine, harbor seals, Steller sea lions, Pacific white-sided dolphins, Tiger Woods is in contention at the U.S Open, orcas, direwolves, minke whales, humpback whale, shemales, bald eagless, gulls, this offseason is killing me, waterfowl, and salmon?
