Curious Alaska: What do you want to know?

Curious Alaska is new feature in the Anchorage Daily News. The idea is simple: You have questions. Our reporters find answers. We share with readers.

Maybe you’re curious about a landmark (like the Parks Highway Igloo, pictured above), or a tradition, a news event, or a public figure from the past. Maybe you have a practical question about everyday life in Alaska.

Some examples of reader questions we’ve looked into so far include why we don’t have a Trader Joe’s here, what Sarah Palin is up to these days, whether there are snakes in Alaska, why sand dunes exist in Kincaid Park and the story behind cattle herds on remote islands in the state.

Nothing is off-limits. Each week, we will choose a question and try our best to answer it. Send yours on the form below. (Having trouble seeing the form? Try here.)
