Most People Think This Is One Of The Worst Places To Live. But Just Wait Til You See These Photos.

Think about Alaska. You’re probably thinking of a cold, icy place, aren’t you? Well, blogger, art enthusiast, and self-proclaimed “Internet seer” Ian Brooks captures his native land of Anchorage, Alaska from a rarely seen perspective—one where the ice is melted and lush, green forests flourish.

This past winter may have been a brutal one for most of the continental US, but Alaska has had an unusually warm season. At one point, the record-breaking temperatures in Alaska were higher than parts of Atlanta, Georgia! Now, it seems that the state’s high temperatures have extended into the last month. Brooks says, “Thank you, Climate Change, for making the past month here in Alaska a balmy 70-ish degrees, and allowing me to get all these fantastic pictures.”
