Ive been very busy with work which hasnt really allowed me to update this as much as Id like but hey Im making money so I cant complain right? Right. Well lately I have been hanging out with a friend/coworker named Eileen, and we have been trying to do things on our day off to get to know more of Anchorage and Alaska. We drove out to Girdwood to see the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center which was really exciting, they have animals like, Brown bears, black bears, caribou, elk, moose, owls, bald eagles, baby orphaned mooses, lynx, buffalo, and musk ox. It was a lot of fun and probably would have been even better if we were not freezing in the cold wind and the rain. That is one thing I have gotten used to is that the weather around here changes so fast. Before we left the weather was chill but somewhat sunny and overcast off and on but driving out to Girdwood it started to get more and more cold and rainy and windy...needless to say we were unprepared, but we had fun none the less. We also decided to go see Portage Glacier since we were so close. Here are some photos of both
We have also gone to a place called Bear Tooth Theater that is also a pub and grill, you go and get ticketsfor the movie they are showing at either 5:30 or 7:40 because different movies play at each time since there is only one screen. So you kind of have to plan a head for what movie is playing what day and what time you want to go then once you get your tickets you can order something to eat and drink and they give you a cone. When they let you into the theater you place your cone on a bench table in front of you and about 5 minutes before the movie arrives they bring you the food, and you can eat dinner and watch the movie. Its super awesome! there is a upstairs balcony area which I prefer and the normal downstairs area where you can reserve booths for a group if you are planning on drinking beer, all alcohol has to stay on the lower level for obvious reasons. But it is sooo much fun and I wish they had more places like this in other areas. There is also a normal restaurant area where you can just go for dinner because the food they have is amazingly delicious!
