So you don’t travel 3600 miles and go straight to the zoo? After we checked into the Anchorage Grand, we grabbed a few brochures in the lobby display. Mac saw the one for the Alaska Zoo, so we decided to visit. The Zoo is about a 20 minute drive from downtown, and a free shuttle picks up once an hour at the Visitors’ Center downtown (intersection of 4th and F). Keeping in our grand tradition, we went on the first shuttle to get there when they opened to avoid large numbers of kids. The zoo doesn’t have a ton of animals, but we had several fantastic interactions.
**Our internet has been on the fritz since we got home. I’ll try uploading more photos after I harass Comcast.**
