For a state as large as Alaska, it is relatively difficult to travel through. The road system is pretty darn minimal! That is why Alaskans must rely
on alternate modes of transportation to get where they are going. In Southeast Alaska, much of the panhandle is accessible only by air or water. The Alaska Marine Highway system was set up to accomodate locals and visitors alike
to get from point A to point B.
Additionally, many of the remote villages in Alaska are accessible by air only...and this led to the creation of the famous Alaska Bush Pilot. Floatplanes and ski planes are often more common than vehicles
in the Alaskan Bush.
