I took this pano on 2012/01/20 at sunset. It was a clear evening with 25-30mph winds on top and no wind on the side where I took this photo. I wanted to stay up there all night, but it was cold and dark with a tricky walk/out of control slide down. All in all it was an incredible evening.

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
