The hardest thing for me to get used to in Alaska was the time. Down below is my watch which I took a picture of one night. I believe I was in Denali which is just south of Fairbanks.
The watch shows a time of 11:32 and it still was not dark. I went in and went to bed. someone told me it really does not get dark until about 2am. Sometimes I was up at 5 and it was already more light than it was at 11:32.
Also, did you know that Alaska is one hour earlier than Pacific time? So if it is 12 noon in New York it is 8am in Alaska. I always though there was just eastern time, central time, mountain time and pacific time.
I will upload the picture as soon as that feature works again!
