after four delays and five gate changes we finally rolled into anchorage at about 9:30 pm local time. the alaskan mountain range is spectacular, even from the plane - they're just enormous and almost all snow-covered, full of ice fields and glaciers. We flew over 300 miles of mountains and then came barreling down through them to land in Anchorage. We've seen the rockies in canada and the states and they don't hold a candle to this. I can't even imagine how big Denali's going to be - it's 10000 ft higher than anything we saw on the way in....
Half the plane was filled with runners here for the marathon as well so it was a pretty rowdy de-planing,
we're exhausted and it's still bloody daylight at 11:30 pm, which makes it 3am our time and time for bed!
