Alaska 2014 – Day 3

Started the day with a run. I headed off with a plan to head off to see how far it was to the bike path we rode on Sunday. Within two blocks, however I spotted a lake with float airplanes parked in it and a path headed along side.

Then we headed downtown and checked out the Anchorage Museum…

One thing that caught my eye was the photo of a foot race held in Anchorage on the 4th of July, 1911 for women. Note the big crowds watching the race…. and the less than aerodynamic clothing that they wore…
