We spent a few days in Anchorage before heading north toward Fairbanks. Here's the Ship Creek area just north of downtown.

Hatcher Pass Road
We never miss the chance to drive the Hatcher Pass Road when we're in the area.

Hope he's not chewing on anything.
Boondocking Along Willow Creek
The climbing expeditions were wound down by the time we visited Talkeetna, but there were lots of tourists.
Talkeetna City Strip
The perfect airstrip, only Cubs! The flightseeing aircraft use a much larger strip nearby.
