On the way to Anchorage from Valdez via the Glenn Highway

Doin' 30 will get you in the hoosgow!

Overnight stop at Slide Creek Campground. 

We parked next to an identical Meridian.  Corky and Fred are avid fisherman from Oregon.  They removed 1 of the couches and put in a big chest freezer to hold all their catch.

I wonder if his middle name is Richard, too?

Moose sighting on the side of the road!


When the sun shines everyone wants to be outside!!!

Lots of parks and nature areas to hike and bike.

Out looking for Moose

I guess everyone is


This one even has antlers.  They shed their antlers every November and grow a new set.

Anchorage has a big moose population.  This park is near the airport and when the moose get to the fence surrounding the airport they stop for a bite to eat.  Lucky us.
