Have You Seen This? Fourth of July, Alaska-style
There is the way the lower 48 celebrate the Fourth of July and there's the way Alaska celebrates. - photo by John Clyde

ALASKA I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July filled with family, food, fireworks and freedom. If you were in Glacier View, Alaska, then you can add one more "F" to the Fourth festivities: flight.

For some reason we love to watch things get destroyed. We don't know why; we just do. For example, don't deny that you loved "ghost riding" your bike when you were a kid. You remember, just pushing that thing and then letting it go and watch it coast on its own until it inevitably crashes. Granted, you usually wanted your friend to do it so you didn't mess up your bike, but you loved watching it happen.

Well, the people in Glacier View have taken that idea to the most adult level possible: ghost riding cars off a giant cliff.

This may seem like the most "Murica" thing ever, but we love it. I've always wanted to visit Alaska, but now I want to celebrate the Fourth of July up there so I can get a firsthand look at the flying Fourth.
