5-13-13 Weather is forecasted to be cloudy/rainy and continued cool – so decided it was a day to go to Anchorage ~35 miles. The visitor center let us know so many of the things just aren’t open yet or not on Mondays so we took a bus tour of the city, had lunch, and enjoyed some touristy things.
Cook’s Inlet was named after the early explorer looking for the Northwest Passage – alas he didn’t find it in Alaska
Lake Hood Float Plane base is the busiest float plane base averaging 190 flights per day.
Enjoyed a stop at the Wild Berry store for chocolate fix. This the largest chocolate fountain.
Clouds began to lift a bit in late afternoon. Heading back to the Mat-Su valley – Palmer.
