A young moose feeds along the Campbell Creek Trail in Anchorage.
This was the weekend all Alaskans were waiting for – bright sunshine and 60 degrees. The only problem was trying to fit everything into just a couple days. Bike rides, hikes, work in the yard, the downtown market – there were so many things to fit in.
Hopefully with these photos, you can enjoy a quick trip through some of the things that make springtime in Alaska great. Days like these probably won't last forever, so we've got to enjoy them while we can.

A couple enjoys the view from the lower deck at the Snow Goose Restaurant. Friday was the first day the deck was open. On Friday evening, the temperatures were around 60 degrees and the sky was clear, offering a view of Mount McKinley in the distance.
Our dinner included Girdwood Golden Mushrooms, a Wasabi-lime fish sandwich and a pint of Bravehart Scottish Ale.
