Alaska was admitted as the 49th state on February 3, 1959. It is the biggest state by far; it is twice as big as Texas, and you could toss in New Mexico as well. It gets a lot of light, or a lot of dark, depending on the season.

Alaska has the highest mountain in North America, Denali. It used to be called Mount McKinley. Before it was called anything, it was simply a really high mountain, which was fine with the critters who lived there.

Rhinos can’t quite understand how the impact of this Natural Phenomenon could be enhanced by one title or another.
