Lake Iliamna is the largest freshwater lake in Alaska and it’s full of secrets. There is reportedly a large white monster that has been seen by Alaskans for generations. This huge lake freezes every winter and there are a number of seals that are present in the spring and disappear in the winter, possibly hiding in an underwater lair that the monster keeps. Some say it’s a sturgeon or a sleeper shark that has adapted to the freshwater lake and grows larger and larger as it gets more ancient. There are a lot of theories, but one thing is certain: Lake Iliamna is sparkling and vast, meaning a day searching for the monster is sure to be a day enjoying a unique and beautiful place in southwestern Alaska.
