Last Trip to Anchorage

Then Heading home to Idaho

sunny 67 °F

We've had absolutely beautiful weather the last few days here in Alaska. Sunny skies and hardly any clouds. The temperature has been in the mid and high 60's. Where was this weather when we were fishing on the Kenai??

On the last day in Seward, my sister and I hiked up to the edge of Exit glacier. The fall colors were spectacular and, of course, the glacier was awesome. It was worth the effort, hiking up the trail. I highly recommend this hike to anyone visiting Seward.

We then drove to Portage valley and camped under the glaciers. Where else in the world can you camp and gaze up at glaciers. We drove under the tunnel to Whittier. We were hoping to catch some silvers, but no such luck. However, we did pick about 2 gallons of yummy blueberries.

We also visited the Alaska Wildlife Preservation Center, where they do wildlife research and rehabilitate injured animals.

On the way into Anchorage, we stopped to view the beluga whales. This was one experience I was hoping to have! I was not able to get pictures of the whales, but I did take one of Turnagin Arm.

We were able to see Denali from Earthquake Park in Anchorage. It was a clear day and one of the days that the mountain was clear of any clouds. What a sight!!

Tonight we will take my sister Cathy to the airport and then in the morning we will drive to Lake Louise, off the Glenn Allen Highway. It is one of the state parks. We plan to stay two days and do some fishing for trout and grayling. I will post the next time I have WiFi.
