Our little piece of Alaska, some 20 acres, has a gorgeous view. We're amazed and blessed to have such a view. Us! With a million dollar view! Or at least several $100,000 worth, though we paid a fraction of that for the land. Our realtor attests he thinks it's the best view in all the area. We don't think the previous owners knew anything about it. But when he looked at the land, The Fisherman wanted to look at every inch of it. He and our realtor walked the entire acreage, only 10 acres at the time, from top to bottom and side to side. They discovered a rare view for our parts.
Most of the surrounding area is flat. About the only view people have is of tree trunks.
We helped our view a bit by cutting down some dead and dying trees
