Whether you hate her or love her, the show portrays some beautiful imagery of Alaska narrated by the prettiest narrator I have seen in awhile. I have enjoyed watching it over the last couple of Sundays. It just makes me wanna visit that wonderful state. Please folks, let's keep our political thoughts to ourselves and concentrate on what is most important here, a show highlighting the great state of Alaska!
"Sarah Palin's Alaska takes viewers into the country's 'final frontier' through the eyes of one of its most famous citizens - Sarah Palin. Sarah is joined by various family members as she shares the state she knows and loves. Along with Alaska's great wilderness, the Palins encounter Alaska's fascinating residents and share what its takes to thrive in the country's largest state. "
How high are the mountains? I've snipped some more specific information than I can offer off the top of my head below:
Homer Airport is located at the head of Coal Bay, on the north shore of Kachemak Bay just to the east of its confluence with Cook Inlet. The shoreline to either side of the station curves toward the north, such that water lies within a mile to the south, west and east. To the northwest through northeast the ground has a gradual rise to 500 feet at a distance of 1 1/2 miles and then rises abruptly to 1,000 feet at a distance of 2 miles from the station. The nearest 1,500-foot elevation in this direction is Lookout Mountain, 4 miles to the north and northeast. The nearest 2,000-foot elevation lies about 12 miles to the southeast across Kachemak Bay, in the foothills of the Kenai Mountains. The width of the bay in this direction is approximately 9 miles. Continuing southeastward beyond Kachemak Bay, at a distance of 15 to 20 miles, is the ridgeline of the northeast-southwest oriented Kenai Mountains with elevations of 4,000 to 6,000 feet.
That certainly looks to be a Bald Eagle. What mountains are we gazing upon and what height?
