For the past few years, many of those who have never been to the state of Alaska know of it because of a controversial bridge to "nowhere," and a famous governor/vice presidential candidate. Obviously, there's much more to the United States' "Last Frontier" than that.
The film The Heart of Alaska, which won the award for Best Cinematography at the New York Independent Film Festival, takes you deep into the gigantic state's interior, where eco-tourism and adventure travel is alive and well. Whether it's exploring Mt. McKinley or viewing waterfalls at Denali National Park, among other activities, there is a rich blend of beauty, culture and history everywhere you look.
