Jul 11, 2014 - Finishing the 136-Mile Denali Highway

After our usual bowl of cereal, we pulled out about 8:30 am. Just as we began moving, there was a big moose to our right about 100 feet away. It moved too quickly for a picture. But we were pleased to see her. We had seen only a few birds and an occasional arctic squirrel for a few days. This highway has been wonderful for scenic mountains, valleys and rivers. We finished the 136 mile Denali Highway about 9:30 am. We stopped about an hour in the first town, Cantwell, Alaska, to read messages and e-mails that had been collecting! It’s good...

Jun 29, 2014 - Church in Anchorage

Sun., June 29th – We arrived at Anchorage Baptist Temple just in time for the pastor’s Sunday School class at 10am. His clearly outlined lesson challenged us to have the heart of a servant, always ready to reach out to others with a humble attitude of ministry…even in the little things of life. The 11am service was highlighted with an inspiring patriotic musical that made us all proud to be Americans. There were several politicians in the service ( Lt. Governor, Senators, etc.) as well as many candidates for the upcoming election. The...

Jun 28, 2014 - A Day in Anchorage

Did another “homey” chore: washed clothes. This kept us in the RV park long enough to have lunch. To our surprise, the RV park grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for its guests! Afterwards, Sue went to a bazaar in downtown Anchorage while Dick arranged for a new power supplier for our home in Round Rock. Then, we visited a couple municipal parks and viewed the busiest sea plane airport, which is next to the Anchorage International Airport. At Earthquake Park, we learned of the extensive destruction in downtown Anchorage and the wipe-out of a...

Jun 24, 2014 - another day in Anchorage

Well we found a mall. It is right in the middle of downtown. Walked around in there for awhile. Was surprised to hear Anchorage doesn't have a sales tax. We took a free trolley over to a knife factory. They make ulu knifes which are sold everywhere. The owner of the factory was out front selling ice cream. Some one asked him why he was selling the ice cream if he owned the factory. He said it was the best job there and he gets to pick his job. It rained again this afternoon so we didn't really do much today.

Jun 23, 2014 - Captain Cook Hotel

I guess the hotel we stayed in was the nicest one in the city. We got out and walked around the city in the morning. Rode a trolley around town. The guide told us all about Anchorage. He said there was 300,000 people living in Anchorage which is 1/3 of the people in Alaska. He stopped the trolley and let everybody get out to see Mt. McKinley. He said that it can only be seen from there about once a month so he was excited that we could see it. We saw a lot of little sea planes and the guide said that about 80% of the people own a plane....

Jun 23, 2014 - Valdez to Anchorage to home

Our last day was a verrrrrrrrry long day. We started at Valdez,and rain. The museum was very interesting, geology, history, culture, earthquake, and oil. The fish hatchery was dull because it wasn't the right time in the salmon season. We still couldn't see Mt. Wrangell on the way back north, but once we turned toward Anchorage at Glennallen, we saw all sorts of mountains and glaciers. Also the most traffic we had even encountered. The most interesting was Matanuska glacier, which is so low in elevation, and so long. Returned the ice chest...

Jun 21, 2014 - Anchorage

21-22 To Anchorage Light drizzle and low ceilings precluded us from seeing the scenic views today as we drove to Anchorage. Enjoyed spending time with a former copilot and his family who are very much into the hunting, fishing, flying, and remote cabin opportunities here as well as their church and Christian school. Also visited friends from our church in Spokane. To Portage Glacier Camped near the glacier.

Jun 19, 2014 - 6/19, Thursday Anchorage

Hi. Today was our day to do Anchorage. Turned out we had about 6 hours there. First, Paul had to get the oil changed in the car. While he did that, I started looking for a source for Flutie's food. Tried all of Palmer's vets and all on the list that Jessica from Royal Canin supplied. None of them stock the diabetic version of the food. So, I called K-Vet for guidance on what to buy and was told to look for high protein, low carb food. Shopping at Petsmart in Anchorage, we found one (I think, if fat is not a carb) and bought a big bag so we...
