NPR Sunday Puzzle (August 28) - Alaskan Conundrum

NPR Sunday Puzzle (August 28) - Alaskan Conundrum
Q: Take a two-word phrase meaning "a difficult puzzle." Drop the first letter, read the remaining letters backward, and you'll get a word for part of Alaska. What is it?
Again, I won't give the answer before the end of the puzzle period, but I will tell you that Alaska isn't the only place to have this 'part'. Work on this on your own and I'm sure you'll have it cracked before then.
Edit: Hopefully you caught all the hints given above... Here's my answer:
A: Difficult Puzzle: HARD NUT --> Part of Alaska: TUNDRA

For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
