Rain in Girdwood, rain that quickly transitioned from pleasant sprinkles to real rain, rain that Baltimore would be glad for in the summer time, rain that soaked all non-waterproof clothing in seconds, rain that made mud puddles big as small ponds. So we decided to have a lazy day.
Spent the morning poking around the shops of Girdwood. There are only five stores here — an artists’ co-op, a gallery/boutique, a used bookstore, a candlemaker, and a pet/garden/gifty things shop — so we made short work of this project.
We had leftovers for dinner in our room and watched at movie, then decided to go for a bear hunt at 10pm (it had finally decided to stop raining). We had incredible views from our drive, and we hunted for a bear sighting assiduously. But we’ve determined that bears are mythological creatures, at least in Alaska.
