Drove 20 miles north of Anchorage to Eagle River Nature Center. I made it there, but the snow was too deep for me to walk the three-mile loop. At least the drive was nice.
I wanted to find Skyline Drive, as it is supposed to be a cool Aurora watching spot. My roller skate got stuck in the deep snow...I had to back down the phucking mountain.
Holy Stuff...the sun then came out. I thought I'd never see it again until I returned to the Valley of the Sun!!! I wanted to see what Anchorage from the Cook Inlet looked like.... So, I went.
This spot is so appealing because each time you go, the light and time and elements are different. New shot every time!
And then, as everyone knows, I am a foodie. It was after 1p and I was hungry. The hotel has breakfast, but it is a breakfast of "egg like food." So...um...no. I grabbed an apple and left.
Glacier Brewhouse looked interesting and got great ratings from Trip Advisor. I walked the 1/2 mile there, and the frigid walk was worth it!! The wine kept me warm on the walk back.
