Hope to Girdwood Day
The Quake destroyed a bunch of Hope and other things were moved to higher ground. All around town are heavy things too much trouble to move. I saw engine blocks, various machinery and this washing machine.
So close to so much outdoors fun and Anchorage makes Hope a weekend get-away for people form the city.
Also two old and very opinionated men who give us all some history lessons about Hope. They chastise my brother when he is only 1/2 paying attention to what they are saying.
Later they show some people around the buildings of the museum and we manage to avoid them.
There were at least 3 different color combinations of these interesting flowers.
We are parking for 2 nights at the resort for $10 a night. Dry camping but you can't beat the price and it is the only camping option that doesn't involve a 5 mile dirt road!
The resort is really fancy and I mean that by normal standards not just Alaska Fancy.
Tomorrow we will do a big hike, Sadly there are a few I'd like to do but we are running out of time for our one fixed date the reservation we have in Denali National Park.
