Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center

On the way to the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center we stopped at a scenic overlook, Bird Point. the highway runs along the side of the Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet. Captain Cook named it “Turnagain” because he was looking for the Northwest Passage, and he had to turn around again. In that body of water I spotted a beluga whale from the bus. Here’s the view from Bird Point:

The Alaskan Wildlife Center is located near Girdwood, at the bottom of Turnagain Arm.

Many of the animals there are rescues. You can see bison, coyotes, porcupines, moose, lynx and other animals including, but not limited to:



Black bear

Grizzly bear

And wolves

Sid might be in trouble…

    Speaking of the treasurer, the great mystery is of course how the Piranha Club manages to aviod being evicted year after year. I can’t imagine they have ever paid rent.

      The eviction was a constant battle. That and the building being condemned. Sid is very resourceful. As for Parks, in the Northwest there Are Several. Cascades comes to mind. I’ve never been there myself. In California there is Yosemite. It maybe the most beautiful of them all, but it’s packed with people.
