The last sunset in Alaska, over the Knik Arm next to the airport

After the very impressive stay on the Matanuska Glacier, see previous blog we hurried further on the Glen Highway. It was later than we thought and Anchorage was not immediately next door. Fortunately we made good progress and after a quick stop in Palmer we made our way into the biggest city of Alaska.

We still needed to do some shopping in Anchorage, re-organize our suitcases, have dinner and make our way to the airport. And, we managed to do all of that including paying one last visit to the park near the airport for some last pictures of a beautiful sunset.

Then everything went very fast. We turned in the faithful rental car and walked a bit on the airport that has a nice collection of mounted wildlife on display.

After so many ghost sites we decided to make a ghostly picture here.
The point of saying goodbye had been a logical step here. I was bound for New York, flying Alaska Airlines/Delta Airlines, while Stephan had booked himself a real vacation in Colorado, flying Continental Airlines. Coincidentally we both had to change planes in Seattle, WA, and our planes left only 20 minutes apart. So, I accompanied Stephan to the Continental gate, and the strolled back to the other side of the airport to catch my plane.
