Stepping up to the edge at the top of the bluff some 45 meters (148 feet) above sea level is just part of the thrill at Point Worenzof. The sight of the Anchorage skyline to the right and the slowly setting sun to the left only helps to dwarf the people on the beach below and gives you a heightened sense of elevation. The real thrill comes from experiencing the rumble of a low flying jet aircraft either landing or taking off from the adjacent runway at Anchorage International Airport.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area. It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Approximately half of Alaska's 710,231 residents (as per the 2010 United States Census) live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska is the least densely populated state of the U.S.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaska
