The land of Palin

We made it to Anchorage! It was a couple of long days out of Whitehorse, but we pushed on and drove our butts off to keep on schedule. Well, not that we really have a schedule, but we had it in our heads to make it to Kim's place by Saturday, and we did! Kim (or as I like to call her, Kimberly) is an old friend of ours, who was kind enough to get a job in Anchorage so that we would have a place to stay on our vacation! ha! She's here working for the CDC as an infectious disease specialist, and is not only a wonderful hostess, but also has told us that pretty much everything we eat, touch or visit has the potential to kill us. I think I preferred being ignorant of all the infectious dangers! We spent the last day resting up a bit, and laying in some supplies. Tomorrow we're heading south to spend the week the Homer, and then Seward, both of which are suppose to be stunning. Hard to believe they could be any more stunning then what we've seen already, but then I've though the same thing from day one of this trip! Friday we are coming back through Anchorage to pick up Kimberly, who will join us for the big trip to our final destination- Dead Horse! Still not sure why they call it Dead Horse, but with a name like that, it's going to be a fun trip!

  1. You MADE it!

    Now tell us why they call it Dead Horse! Is it a site for infectious diseases for horses???
