Events of Tuesday Posted Wednesday morning by Merrill

Last night (Monday night) when we were coming from inside the Fred Meyer store to the parking lot we saw a very interesting sight.  It was after 11pm (still daylight) when we came back to the parking lot where our R.V. was parked; there by our camper was a mother moose and two calves wondering around in the parking lot. After we and others took a few pictures she wondered off in the woods; how neat is that to have a wild moose come right into a business parking lot in downtown Anchorage.  Before we started traveling today we took our R.V. to have the oil changed and the ladies did some shopping. While in town we went to the Resolution Park at Cook Inlet where we ate a picnic lunch and then to the Ulu Factory by Ship Creek where we were hoping to see salmon running however it is a bit too early in the season. We headed south out of Anchorage on the Seward Hwy. a beautiful scenic route so we stopped numerous times to get out and walk and take pictures. Our destination for today was Girdwood, Ak. where Alyeska Resort is located. They have a cable tram that has two gondolas that take passengers up the mountain for an awesome view. On the mountain is the round house restaurant and gift shop. We purchased tickets to ride the tram and also took the opportunity to use the hotel’s internet.
