Shipping from the State of Alaska to Utah
On January 3, 1959, Alaska became the 49th state of the United States. Alaska is the largest U.S. state by area and the seventh largest sub national division in the world. Conversely, it is the 3rd least populous and the most sparsely populated of the 50 United States.
It is located northwest extremity of the United States West Coast, just across the Bering Strait from Asia. The Canadian province of British Columbia and the territory of Yukon border the state to the east and southeast. Its most extreme western part is Attu Island, and it has a maritime border with Russia (Chukotka Autonomous Okrug) to the west across the Bering Strait. To the north are the Chukchi and Beaufort seas—southern parts of the Arctic Ocean. The Pacific Ocean lies to the south and southwest. It is technically part of the continental U.S., but is sometimes not included in colloquial use; Alaska is not part of the contiguous U.S., often called “the Lower 48”. The capital city, Juneau, is situated on the mainland of the North American continent but is not connected by road to the rest of the North American highway system. Anchorage is the largest city by population.
Alaska is nicknamed The Last Frontier. It is also well-known as the “Land of the Midnight Sun”. The state tree is the Sitka Spruce, the state bird is the Willow Ptarmigan and the state flower is the Forget-me-not. The state motto is “North to the Future”.
Shipping to the State of Alaska to Utah
Mountains, high plateaus, and wilderness form most of Utah’s countryside. At Four Corners, in the southeast, Utah gets together Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona at right angles, the only such meeting of states in the country. Utah became the 45th associate of the union on Jan. 4, 1896, with Salt Lake City as its capital.
Utah is acknowledged for having some of the best skiing in the country, and the mountains close to Salt Lake City receive an average of 500 inches of snow per year. Throughout the 19th century, many Mormons settled in Utah, and today approximately 60 percent of the state’s inhabitants are members of the church. The Sundance Film Festival, one of the premier independent film festivals in the world, is held each January in Park City.
