    Univ. of Alaska, Museum of the North

    July 14, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 72 °F

    Loved this museum for both the architecture, very dramatic; but also for the content....a little bit of social science, Alaska history, historical biographies, natural science, animals, geology, and art; both older native American and current contemporary pieces!! And all sort of mixed together in some exhibits. Also has a special exhibit about earthquakes in Alaska. (Side note: they have some sort of earthquake up here about every 15 minutes....in the last five years 84% of the earthquakes over magnitude 4.0 occur in Alaska, 10% in Calif, and the rest in the balance of the states) But I digress, what I loved about this visit was the art gallery that is a part of the museum. I have included pics of some of my favorites. So we spent the morning and through lunch here just enjoying the exhibits. We also watched a 30 minute Nat Geo documentary on "Extreme Weather" that was interesting and Tom stayed awake for the whole film!

    Grabbed a late lunch, halibut sandwich! I love fish, I wish I could get more comfortable cooking with it... and maybe if it was a little less expensive! Finished up with some typical end of the day errands, filled up with gas, picked up a few random groceries and checked in at the next RV site. We all had showers tonight because next couple of nights will be in Denali national park!

    Programm für Regenwetter

    June 5, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Auch in Alaska ist das Wetter nicht immer schön. Das merke ich schon auf dem Weg zum Diner um die Ecke. Es regnet und es bläst ein eisiger Wind. Ich nutze die Zeit, um meinen Blog auf Vordermann zu bringen und schmutzige Wäsche zu waschen.

    Am Nachmittag geht es ins Museum. Die University of Alaska bietet eine interessante Ausstellung mit kultur- und naturhistorischen Exponaten aus allen Regionen Alaskas. Genau das Richtige für einen verregneten Nachmittag.
