Alaskan Fall

While Alaska is usually associated with winter, the gigantic USA state has areas in its southern portions with much more temperate climates and millions of decidious (leaf-bearing) trees.  In these areas, while Fall is but a short period between a short summer and a long winter, the landscape turns to brilliant colors in this period.  Contributor Alaska42 gives us a marvelous bird's eye view of an Alaskan Fall in this amazing drone video, filmed with a DJI Mavic Pro.

ALASKA IN 4K!!!!

Alaska is massive - it would be amongst the world's top 20 countries in land area if it were an independent nation rather than the USA's 48th state.  And given the enormous north-south distance covered by the state, there are huge climatic variations, with the northern parts above the Arctic Circle and the southern portions having a climate similar to British Columbia in western Canada.  In this marvelous video, CH Drone treats us to a 4k aerial tour of the Last Frontier.

Alaska Railroad

The Alaska Railroad is the sole operating railroad in this gigantic state of Alaska, the USA's 49th state.  It is a Class II railroad which runs about 740 km (470 mi) from the southern part of the state up to Fairbanks in the north.  Due to the difficulty of railroad construction in the Arctic and near-Arctic conditions, it is the only rail service in the USA to carry passenger and freight trains on the same system.  Contributor Alaska42 used a drone to get an aerial view of a train running through the winter landscape.

Upper Dewey Lake sits near the town of Skagway, Alaska, on the Alaska Panhandle.  Near the southwest corner of the state, the landscape is more like the Pacific Northwest of the USA or Canada's British Columbia than the Arctic environment which characterizes the northern part of the state.  Contributor Daniel Molina hiked the lake with his DJI Phantom 4 Professional drone to create this mesmerizing aerial tour of a pristine mountain lake surrounded by snow covered peaks.

Due to the lack of roads, a popular way to explore Alaska is by cruise ship.  Dozens of large passenger ships regularly travel between the large cities on the West Coast of the USA and Canada and various points on the Alaskan waters.  In this video, top contributor Exclusive Aerials traveled aboard a cruise ship with a drone.  He was able to capture some amazing footage of fjords, glaciers, icebergs, and the overall beauty of the pristine northern paradise sometimes referred to as the Last Frontier.

While Alaska was purchased by the USA from Russia in 1867, it was a series of gold strikes beginning in the 1890's that put the territory on a path towards statehood.  In this video, contributor gives us a bird's eye view of Independence Mine, which lies north of the Matanuska River upstream of its discharge at Anchorage.  The mine is part of Independence Mine State Park, which commemorates Alaska's Gold Rush.  The great rush peaked in 1897-98 and was more or less over by about 1903.
