So check out the picture below of the "moose warning" that was posted on the front door of the residence halls today - Anchorage rocks! There have been a couple moose hanging around the campus lately - mostly cows, it seems, but there have been a few bulls as well. Nothing huge, though.
The other pictures are shots of the Lake Hood Seaplane Base - apparently the largest seaplane base in the world. It's made up of two lakes - lakes Hood and Spenard, connected by a couple big waterways large enough for floatplanes to land on. We had to visit as part of a class assignment. I thought the truck with no rear wheels (used for moving floats around on land) was particularly funny.
