Alaska - Post 4

I forgot to mention in my last post that we also saw a lot of sea life while on the boat. We saw sea otters, seals, and even an Orca, which was really cool! So our last day we drove up to Wasila, which is about an hour north of Anchorage. On our way up though, we saw a great view of Flat Top, the mountain we climbed our first day...

So we went up to Wasila to see an old gold mining place,  but while we were there, we figured we should look up where Sarah Palin lives.  That's right, I googled it and found her address and a site to show you exactly where to see it.  We followed the road, but it ended in a large fence around her property (perhaps other people have thought of this before).  There is a Best Western a few doors down though, so we went out on their dock and could see their house and personal plane from the water.  So, here it is.  We figured that if we were in Wasila, we might as well look up its most famous resident!

Then it was on to the gold mine...except when we got there, this is what it looked like...

The trail was closed and it was actually snowing, so we didn't make the hike to it unfortunately.

But on our way back we got to drive along this beautiful scenery.

Then it was back to Anchorage and ready for our overnight flight back home.  We did a lot during our trip and saw a lot of amazing things.  It was so great to spend time with Theresa and Josh and I just want to thank them both for showing us around.  It was a great trip!
