Notes
1. This city plus state formula is idiomatic, but should one want to analyze it, it means "Sandorf *which is in* Alaska."
2. Technically "to go" is a verbal (infinitive) that functions as the direct object of "would like," but until students get to KISS Level 2.1.6, I would accept the verb phrase as marked above.
3. "A Girl in a Big Hat" is a retained complement after the verbal (gerundive) "named." The gerundive phrase functions as an adjective to "picture."
