In the morning, at the Caribou Inn, as I actually looked around the room, there was a sign in the bathroom stating to pull hard on the faucets and if you couldn't get hot water, to try the opposite way on the faucet as some of the plumbing was backwards - I couldn't help it, I had to take a picture!

Then I noticed that at least I would be safe in the shower, the little non-slip fish that some people put in the bottom of the tub were even on the side of the tub! I'm a terrible person, I completely acknowledge that. Anyway, LJ's only comment about the 'breakfast' part of our B&B experience was "I'm guessing you want to eat somewhere else?" I said yes and we left the Caribou... never to return... I hope.

It was a nice break to eat from restaurants I haven't been to in over a year, and shop in an actual mall which I've spent an absurd amount of money at. Make-up, purses and shoes; oh my! But this little concrete jungle in the middle of the last frontier and its sparkle and lustre have faded away. I wish I would have had more time to explore and see the outskirts of Anchorage. But ...
... following your dreams and not giving up! We then boarded our coach. By the way, Tina is our driver. She took us around Anchorage. In downtown, we got off the bus and walked down toward Cook Inlet and got on a nature trail. Tina picked us up a couple of miles later. During our tour, we saw the largest Floatplane Airport in the world. We even saw a plane land on the water. We have enjoyed the scenery as we tour this beautiful town. I ...
... of the Paxson Lake, looking over it to a wide valley of thick pine tree cover, then to snowy mountains.
We stop at a large parking space over the lake and valley for photos and a look at a camper with an Australian sign on it. We take photos then approach the camper and hail the occupants. An Australian man answers the door and we chat for a while, until the mosquitoes drive us all inside their camper. The camper is simple, but very neatly kept, and seems to ...
... and subsistence advocate, writes evocatively in "Shopping for Porcupine" about the cultural and ecological impact of snow mobiles. Kantner argues that snow mobiles contributed to a decline in community cohesion, an unhealthy reliance on technology that reduced subsistence and survival skills, and promoted unsustainable hunting practices. He cites stories of how hunters on fast moving snow mobiles would chase down and shoot an entire wolf pack in an afternoon - and sell ...
