    Looks like you had a great visit to Anchorage, and got to see a few things most tourists miss (like Flattop, favorite day hike for many locals). Oh, and you are quite right, those are the Chugach Mtns east of the city. Come back again! ;-) cat

    Hi~ We just got back from a 3 1/2 week trip to Alaska. We enjoyed every moment - and spent the last two days in Anchorage. We like the Snow City Cafe and walking around town. Denali Ice Cream was great, too...
