After having family living in The Frontier State for over 30 years, it was time to make the trip.
The travel to Anchorage by plane was a smooth three hour flight leaving Sea Tac in hot weather to arrive in cooler temperatures and rain.

The largest city in the state reminded me of Tacoma. It is a city with a few tall buildings that are mostly hotels and banks. Perhaps the concerns of earthquakes may be the reason.
Many airlines no longer use 747 planes for passenger travel but Anchorage does with operations for cargo shipments as a hub for the 49th state.
Using T-Mobile in Alaska
When Using T-Mobile in Alaska, you will notice that you will be partnered with GCI (a cable, internet, and cell phone provider covering Alaska).
T-Mobile does have a partnership with the company in order to provide service.
5g services were working in Anchorage and Wasilla. Some of these were taken in areas that were considered remote to any carrier.
Using T-Mobile for Inflight Service with Alaska Airlines
The free inflight wifi service worked well on the phone (when using Alaska Airlines) but if you choose to use your Chromebook (and it doesn't have a sim card it) be prepared to pay the $8.00 if you are flying coach.

All of the photos (with the exception of the Talkeetna page) were shot using a One Plus Nord N20. Some were shot at 64 mega pixels.
The first place I did make a visit too was the Lucky Wishbone, a diner that has been around since 1955 at the same location. My Father ate there for the first time when he was serving in The National Guard assisting in the aftermath of the 1964 earthquake.
This diner's specialty is pan fried chicken with portions and quality and prices that didn't disappoint (unlike a certain popular chicken chain that has gone downhill in quality).
The shakes use real ice cream. The strawberry shakes have real strawberries in them.
