"Only in Alaska"
We've heard the term a number of times--"Only in Alaska!" A couple of neat examples of that expressions:
Only in Alaska would your subdivision share the back yards to double as your "landing strip"!!
This is a windy knoll that looks out over the Cook Inlet/Turnagain Arm where some paragliders were practicing. Just off the knoll you can see the "mud flats", common for the shore-line around Anchorage and then the waters of the Turnagain Arm and then the mountains of the Kenai Peninsula in the background.
In South Anchorage, a church with an "onion" dome. Note the cyrillic characters on the sign.
