Creekwood Inn, Anchorage, AK

Thunderbird Falls

Tuesday, June 30, 2015, Creekwood Inn, Anchorage, AK, 62.9 Miles Today, 4449.1 Miles for the Trip

A short drive to Anchorage this morning to meet Don's sister, who is flying in from Syracuse to join us for a couple of weeks. We looked up the various campgrounds in the city, and although none of them were ideal, we settled on the Creekwood Inn. The smallest, most compact sites we have had on the trip. While the bathrooms are clean, nice showers, and full hookups, at $41.40 per night, it isn't cheap. Then again, the reviews for the other parks didn't have a lot good to say about any of them, and some were more expensive. In any case, we are here two days. We are in sites 18 & 19.

After setting up, we drove back along the Glenn Highway to Thunderbird Falls. An easy 1 mile hike, but not the most picturesque falls we've seen. There isn't a good location for a photograph, however I did the best I could from the viewing platform at the end of the hike.

Don's sister arrived around 5:00 & we picked her up at the Long House Hotel, and went to dinner at Gwennie's Old Alaska Restaurant. Good food, but expensive, as are all the restaurants in Alaska. I had Halibut & fries, very good, but hardly worth $26.00.

Until next time -
