June 29 - Anchorage
Rafter on the Susitna River with Denali showing its top
The cinnamon bun was the best one we’ve had so far on the road. The Alaska Highway is supposed to be famous for a succession of wonderful, over-indulgent cinnamon buns, but we have not been impressed until now. The cinnamon bun from the Talkeetna Bakery lived up to the legend.
After breakfast, we hooked up and headed to Anchorage. As we got closer, the traffic got heavier until we were in genuine big-city traffic, which comes as something of a shock after pretty much having the whole road to ourselves for the last month.
We’re staying in the Ft. Richardson Fam-Camp through the 4th of July, so we plan on doing some serious housekeeping, maintenance, and re-stocking, along with a long visit with our friends Deb and Jerry in Wasilla. And maybe a museum or two. Big city stuff like that.
I’m already anxious to leave!
This is a Snowshoe Hare we saw on the roadside in Denali - this doesn't have anything to do with Anchorage, but I like the picture. When Gypsy spotted this big guy, I learned that she can yodel, because that's what she did but he was quite unimpressed.
