A common, but great view of downtown Anchorage, Alaska Moose calf feeding in the dusk sky at the Ted Stevens international airport First glimpse of Anchorage, AK.
#goldenhour My first morning in Alaska and I encountered this moose in the area between Earthquake Park and the airport. It waded into the water and started drinking. It made for a good photo opportunity. #BarLove Darwin's theory is a great hole-in-the-wall bar in the middle of downtown Anchorage Alaska. Always something crazy going on there! We took the train from Denali to Anchorage. This is a scenic taken from the train about half way from Denali toward Anchorage. Our sun is setting at 1543. Have to take advantage of every ounce of the great Alaska outdoors.. #GoldenHour

#snow The busiest float plane seaport in America.. From the 17th floor of the Hotel Captain Cook. A walk in the rain can lead you to many wonderful sights. Upstairs is a phenomenal wine shop full of charm and grape-y wonderment. With vast pickings all arranged in category's such as It was that crazy time of my life some 10 years ago where I ventured to Antarctica and then took a step further by venturing to the Arctic Circle in the north in the middle of winter!
The path I took from the south passed through Anchorage and Fairbanks by plane and then further by car to Coldfoot where in -40deg C/F I was out there alone catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights!
This is where I see the most #snow in my life, other than when I was living in Toronto! Conner's Bog dog park. Sunset at the Turnagain arm. Lake Hood is the busiest seaplane base in the world! Eat at the restaurant in The LakeFront hotel (used to be the Millennium) and watch the planes come and go.

In the heart of Anchorage, even though it doesn't appear to be. This museum is well worth a visit, full of native artifacts and treasures. One of the federal buildings in Anchorage.

Catch of the day, salmon! Great sunset views at this restaurant in Anchorage AK. It is is absolutely stunning. Leaving Alaska. Lake Hood Seaplane Base in Anchorage - the busiest and largest in the world. Super cool view, Alaska is awesome.. A dream come true On approach to Anchorage, AK The 1964 Alaskan earthquake, also known as the Great Alaskan earthquake and Good Friday earthquake, occurred at 5:36 PM AST on Good Friday, March 27. Across south-central Alaska, ground fissures, collapsing structures, and tsunamis resulting from the earthquake caused about 139 deaths.
Lasting four minutes and thirty-eight seconds, the magnitude 9.2 megathrust earthquake was the most powerful recorded in North American history, and the second most powerful recorded in world history. Soil liquefaction, fissures, landslides, and other ground failures caused major structural damage in several communities and much damage to property. Anchorage sustained great destruction or damage to many inadequately earthquake engineered houses, buildings, and infrastructure (paved streets, sidewalks, water and sewer mains, electrical systems, and other man-made equipment), particularly in the several landslide zones along Knik Arm. Two hundred miles southwest, some areas near Kodiak were permanently raised by 30 feet (9.1 m). Southeast of Anchorage, areas around the head of Turnagain Arm near Girdwood and Portage dropped as much as 8 feet (2.4 m), requiring reconstruction and fill to raise the Seward Highway above the new high tide mark.
The park represents part of the remnants of a landslide caused by that earthquake. Street vendor. Peanut butter pie... Yumm! A state champ and MVP. Kodiak Lady Bears go 27-0 Breakfast sandwich of Reindeer sausage. The Sandwich Deck is nothing fancy to look at, but the food's good and the price is right. Enjoying the Blues at a happening new place... Killjoy Thankful that a fellow participant at the RISING-SUN conference shared some seaweed with us this morning. I will try fermented whale at lunch. When in the traditional territories of original peoples, it's good to eat some of the food they offer you - it's respectful, and it shows your appreciation for that which nourished your guests for hundreds of thousands of years.
