I am a sucker for these films. I spent a good amount of time working in Alaska in the winter on a few television shows. The job required flying around a good amount of the state by plane and by car. Of all the places I visited the area of the state that left the most lasting impression was up above the Arctic Circle north of Fairbanks about 100 miles. There is something staggering beautiful about a place that would take your life so easily if you were to not be prepared or say your car battery died. It's definitely worth the trip.
