Mosquitoes are no joke
When you cross the end of the Delta Junction Highway, you don’t have to worry about bears or moose waiting for you. Instead, there are humungous skeeters ready to suck your blood and innards out of your body. So, if you want to visit Alaska, make sure to bring lots of mosquito repellent and probably a huge electric mosquito racket, just in case.
Just kidding. As you can see, the skeeters in this picture are just statues. In the visiting center at the end of the highway is all the free coffee your bladder can hold. Despite the frigid climate, there is a mosquito problem in Alaska but usually only between the months of June and July.
