In Search of the Northern Lights

Back to Anchorage.

sunny 18 °F

Once the sun came up we checked out and headed to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to visit the rescued animals. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to conservation, research, education, and animal care. The center is located on about 200 acres (81 ha) at the head of Turnagain Arm and the entrance to Portage Valley. It is a Wildlife sanctuary for orphaned or injured wildlife, as well as home or temporary home to captive born and translocated wildlife such as wood bison. It is a wildlife sanctuary that provides comfortable, permanent homes for orphaned and injured animals.
We then headed back to Anchorage and checked into the Hilton for the night in preparation for boarding the Alaska Railroad for our 12 hours train journey to Fairbanks! We had a wonderful view of the setting sun and the rising full moon.
