When I announced my trip to Anchorage, Alaska, I was bombarded with suggestions of what I should do while there. All the tourism favorites were presented to me: glacier cruises, the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, hiking, museums, etc.
The truth is, I had no expectations for the great wide open of Alaska other than to experience each day as though I lived there. I had only one goal for my impromptu vacation: to kiss a moose.
I was fortunate enough to stay with a friend who provided me with a truck to use at my leisure during my stay. I set out each day to explore what Anchorage had to offer me. After four days, I still had not seen even one moose.
On my last full day in Alaska, I drove an hour down the breathtakingly scenic Seward Highway to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. While I didn’t get to kiss a moose, I was able to take this awesome photo of one.
