While Alaska is a geographically large part of the country (it's one-fifth the size of the entire continental United States!), the state's isolation from the lower 48 makes traveling there almost like an excursion to a different country.

For the wives on new OWN docu-series, Married to the Army: Alaska, living on post in Alaska while their husbands were deployed in Afghanistan was a huge adjustment. In Alaska, the ladies (and the OWN crew!) found a picturesque and mysterious place full of glaciers, mountains and wildlife they'd never seen before. The following photos capture the vast beauty of Alaska, and we've also added in some fun facts about the state known as "The Last Frontier."
