Just got the new catalog, nice cover photo.  I want to know where in Alaska they have palm trees?

Believe it or not, they supposedly grow there.  See https://www.allaboutpalmtrees.com/palm-trees-in-alaska .
Who knew.  Tailwinds, John

Well, as surprising as it may sound, palm trees do grow in Alaska. Although they are not much in number but they can be seen in some areas like Anchorage, Juneau, and the beachy sides.
My bike tour of Alaska was amazing that made me explore its beauty and mystery.
Here are some best bike options for such tours:
Maxfoot
BMX Elite
GT
Trek Corporation

You never know.  A few years ago I discovered that there is a species of pelican that spends the summer as far north as Montana and western Canada.  Saw a half dozen in MT back in 2016.  Always thought of them as exclusively warm climate birds.  The American White Pelican.  Look it up.  Second largest wingspan of any bird in N. America behind the California Condor.  Keep you eyes peeled if you are outthat way.  Big, white birds with black wing tips.

A very strange bird in the Pelican.  Its beak holds more than its belly can.
