In Alaska, I got to see mountains, forests, rivers and glaciers all teeming with wildlife and biodiversity, but then I also slept in Walmart parking lots and ate at Denny’s.

One of the most memorable stops was a place in Horse Cave, Ky.

The two lovely women working there reminded me of people in the Liberace Museum, kind of like cult-member loyalists.

Visiting the Tina Turner museum in Brownsville, Tenn., which I had no idea was there.

It’s that mix of grandeur and banality that makes Alaska such a profoundly American place.
