2019/09/11 Alaska Day 08: Seward Highway, Girdwood, and Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center
π 2019-09-11 01:01 in Ak2019, Trips

Our next destination being Seward, we drove south towards Seward. The highway is very scenic, so we stopped a few times for pictures:







Next, we stopped at Girdwood/Alyeska Ski Resort and took their somewhat overpriced tram up for a view and a short hike (we only stayed 30mn so as to arrive in time at our next destination for animal talks):



had we had more time, we could have hiked up

sadly all the ski lifts were closed, the snow was also gone, and I forgot my snowboard. Luck was not on my side :)

We then hurried towards the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center for their 14:30 fox talk and 2 more talks after that:




Their neighbours were coyotes:



They had some adorable porcupines, including one that was missing a leg:




they taught it to walk up and down its new 3 floor condo despite the missing leg
