By Motorcoach Through the Yukon & Alaska

An easy drive (with a stop at the Iditarod sled dog race headquarters in Wasilla) brought us to Anchorage, where we checked into the historic Anchorage Hotel. This is one of my favourite hotels in Alaska - a charming "boutique" property built in 1936, with exceptionally friendly and efficient staff. There's no restaurant, but each morning, Kathleen's Creative Catering brought in an extremely good breakfast - very high quality and great variety that was different each day. This picture of the hotel was shot at 8:35 p.m.
