Moose Breath and Moose's Tooth, Another Perfect Day
Hey all, Mary here. Just in case anyone was confused - or cared - this post will probably be dated Saturday, but it's still Friday here - and Bryan's last post was made on Thursday night not Friday like it says.
We took another trip down the scenic Seward Highway again today, but only went about 40 miles down to the end of Turnagain Arm. This is a picture of the inlet that you drive along. You can see the mud flats in the picture here because the tide was out, yesterday morning, this was all covered in water.
We went to see the animals at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. It's a wildlife rehab and education center that has moose, bears, elk, Sitka deer, bison, caribou, muskox, coyotes and other animals. We had a great time and took a ton of pictures. I also got up close and personal with a moose!
Unfortunately, there was a fence that you can't see in these pics. But he did stick his nose through and I was able to pat him on the nose. I got to pet a moose! How cool is that?!
After our little day trip, we went out for a late lunch at the Moose's Tooth. It is a pizza place/brew pub here in Anchorage. This is the second time we've eaten here since we've arrived and it was killer. Highly recommended to anyone who happens to make it up here.
Anyway, that's enough for this post. I'm going to go through our pictures from the boat trip in Seward and hopefully make another post tonight.
Kiss my baby for me!
