The Alaska State Capitol, #44 in the count-up (or #7 in the Capitol Countdown) was Awesome! I didn't go to Alaska with any expectations, but what I found were plenty of surprises...like a Glacier (more on that later). Ended up having the longest personal tour of a state Capitol so far, and took the most number of pictures, which is probably not a coincidence. This'll take more than one posting. I didn't find any igloos (which is largely a myth anyway, but I found a lot of warm people (including the world's greatest window washer and the son of Alaska's first Governor) and a reception to match. Special thanks to Steve Suewing and Barbara Propes!
