The More You Know

While growing up in Anchorage, Alaska I would often stare at the mountain you see picture above. It’s officially called Mount Susitna but more popularly known among locals as The Sleeping Lady for its resemblance to a woman resting on her side in deep slumber. The tale told to every Alaskan child is that only the safe return of her warrior husband from battle would awaken her from her sleep.

Wikipedia has a list of other mountain ranges around the world that also shares Mount Susitna’s “The Sleeping Lady” nickname.
