The city is huge.  Consider you're packing in over a quarter of a million people (40% of the state's population) into one community.  Add to it there isn't a huge limitation of land -- it's almost as easy to grow outward as it is to build upward.  Include that people like to shop at Wal-Mart, and you've got yourself Anchorage.

This is nice, isn't it?  Much prettier, too, than the welcome sign in the airport. From the airport looking toward town, only a few buildings are tall enough to be seen from afar... ... for that matter, from a-near.
Contributing to the mosquitoes population is the many ponds, but they are quite pretty to see. "Northern Lights" is a fairly common phrase out here.  I bet people name their kids that, too. Sunset at 11pm takes some getting used to.  And sunrise at 4:30am as well.
