Alaskan Adventures

After falling head over heals in love with all that is Yukon, we found Alaska to be much more American.
The pawn shop sign advertises 'Guns and Loans.' Definitely American.

Denali Park is home to North America's highest mountain, Mt. McKinley, towering over 20,300 feet tall (clearly, the CFHCT can jump higher)

We initially bypassed Anchorage for a beautiful jaunt down the Kenai Peninsula. It was amazing. We have seen many, many mountains but this was mountains and sea, and just WOW!! We watched some smelt fishing and frolicked briefly on the beach (brrrrrrr). After a brief action shot with an oversized eagle and it's overly attentive proprietor we proceeded back to Anchorage.

Although our hostel was underwhelming, it was very exciting to have our own beds for 4 nights in a row!! The World Beard and Moustache Championship was now and we were exhausted and seriously excited.
