The city of Anchorage was unimpressive. Overrun with tourists in downtown and dirty streets and buildings everywhere else. I understand there isn't much up this way, but that doesn't excuse the fact that 50% of the houses and building we have seen are covered in trash. It's really a shame. The scenery around here is amazing.
We did stumble into a really cool little museum that was actually on the lower floor of a wells fargo bank.
They had artifacts out about everyday life for the old school alaskans. Many of them you could literally reach out and touch. The head of the museum came over to chat with us and expressed his distain for the paintings that were on the floor in the library. Some of them worth upwards of $500,000. There they were, just leaning against the shelf on the floor. Apparently the owner lent them to the museum and didn't care where they went.
