Alaska Giveaway Winners Announced! Plus Quiz Answers!

Well guess what guys. Not one of you got any of the questions from my giveaways right. Do you know what that means? I get to keep EVERYTHING! MWAHAHAHA!

JUST KIDDING!!

You guys did AMAZING! It seriously was so much fun! I loved reading all your responses to the answers. :) In case you didn't enter or want to know for sure, here are the answers to each question.

*note* This is a very long post. Hang in there, k?

Giveaway #1:
Question- What year did Alaska become a state and who did the United States buy it from?
Answer- 1959 and Russia

Giveaway #2:
Question- Approximately how many lakes does Alaska have?
Answer- 3 MILLION!
Bonus Question- What is the Alaska State Sport?
Answer- Dog Mushing! I just love that one. :)

Giveaway #3:
Question- How tall is Denali/ Mt. McKinley?
Answer- Denali stands at a whopping 20,320 ft above sea level making it the highest point in North America!
Bonus Question- What is the closest point between Alaska and Russia?
Answer- Big Diomede (owned by Russia) and Little Diomede (owned by the United States) are only seperated by a tiny little 2 miles. From the actual coasts they are only seperated by something like 50 miles. Crazy.

Giveaway #4:
Question- True or False? Alaska is larger than the next three largest states combined?
Answer- TRUE! So that means if you combined Texas (you guys think you're so big. ha!), California, AND Montana, Alaska would still be bigger.

Giveaway #5:
Question- If you're in the wild and came across a black bear, what should you do? What about a Grizzly?
Answer- Black Bear; Get as big as you can (if you're in a group huddle together) stand on your toes and reach your arms up. Talk to the bear in a low voice. Fight back if it attacks. Grizzlies; play dead. Lay on your belly with your hands on the back of your neck.
Bonus Question- What do you do if you meet a Polar bear?
Answer- Pray. haha! Back away slowly and avoid eye contact. Use deterents but don't run.

Basically any bear can out run any human. DON'T RUN!

Giveaway #6:
No right or wrong answer. :) It was all opinion.
