Anchorage, AK

I am finally getting ready to finish my blog about our wonderful trip to Alaska. One reason it has taken me some time as we had hardwood floors put in our family room while we were gone. This also involved sanding the kitchen and refinishing that room too. We came home to all the furniture in the dining room and some dust although, the fellow who did the floors was as careful as possible with the dust. I also had 10 days of dead-heading to do in my garden! Enough excuses! As you can imagine, Anchorage was not as beautiful as other places we visited. It was a very touristy town. I did find some things worth a few photos.

Add ImageI find ravens and crows very interesting so I couldn't resist this sign.

Here we have a bear dressed in Alaska themed fabric.

Another raven -bear advertisement of sorts. The following pictures have no political overtones as far as I'm concerned. I just thought they were funny no matter your politics!

We only saw Sarah Palin stuff in Anchorage, no where else in Alaska.

These beautiful flowers were everywhere. I don't think I've ever seen so many pretty flowers in a city!

This was a nice tribute to the Iditarod dogs.

The Alaska railroad is an important form of transportation in Alaska. People we met in Seward had traveled there from Anchorage.

There is a great bike-walking path along the water in Anchorage. We saw these interesting birds. Someone told us they were a type of Crane. We need to check our bird book!
I'll try to get the wild flower walk on tomorrow. Thanks again to our loyal followers on this trip!
