We spent the day in Anchorage at the Fur Rendezvous.
This is my favorite time of year and one of the things I dearly love about living in Alaska.
During Rondy, the streets of downtown Anchorage are filled with the smell of wood smoke and good food and the crisp cold Alaskan winter. The sound of happy people and excited dogs echoes off the buildings. And the streets are filled with snow.
And in a week, it’s the Iditarod (those of you outsiders who think you know something about the Iditarod, think again, it’s one of the greatest stories in
Alaskan American, history).
I spent the day taking pictures. Here are some of my favorites:
And we finished up with lunch at the Snow Goose and Sleeping Lady Brew House, complete with a coffee sludge.
An altogether excellent day to be an Alaskan.
