U.S. State Stereotypes Captured In One Cliché Photo
If you think about Alaska, ice, igloos, Eskimos, and a totally barren terrain probably pop into your head, and that’s partly true. Alaska has the lowest density of any state, with just 1.2 people per square mile. Much of the country is uninhabitable due to the harsh terrain.
Because of the low population density, wildlife doesn’t feel as much fear in Alaska. Two bears stopping traffic isn’t an everyday occurrence, but it isn’t that abnormal in this chilly state. Apparently, all the residents know to stay back and just let them fight it out. Imagine explaining to your boss that you’re late to work because of a bear fight!
