My 4 legged family members need kennel care

by evaesq

Hi, I'll be travelling from the bush and will be spending Christmas in a hotel in Anchorage. My dog and cat need a kennel to stay in because we won't be able to take them wherever we go in Anchorage. The first kennel that was recommended to us told us they filled up in **JUNE** and have a 30 animal waiting list! We want the best, of course. Would any of you wonderful Anchorage people please, please recommed some wonderful kennels in and around Anchorage? btw, Wasilla is too far away.
Thanks very much. Eva

Eva,
When we lived in Anchorage we would use Jewel Lake Boarding Kennels. Right next to the airport and very clean. 243-0685.
That was a few years back - not sure they are in business anymore.

RE: RE: My 4 legged family members need kennel care--THANKS!

by evaesq

Thank you so, so much for your advice! Just for other's information I did end up with a Wasilla/Palmer location which used to be Greatland Kennels but is now Alaska TLC (745-5380). The place that came recommended by two veterinarians was Rabbit Creek Kennels 345-1152 in Anchorage but, again, they filled up in June. I have a whole other list in addition to the ones you gave me but each and every location was full! It's amazing. What happens to everyone with regard to their animals in Anchorage over Christmas anyway?
Thanks again for your help. You are a tremendous resource.

Travel Tips for Anchorage

Lake Creek on the Yentna River...

by FredLDay

Lake Creek on the Yentna River for Silver Salmon. Pre-pipeline Anchorage. Sorry. Anchorage had a unique personality before the pipeline impact. The Anchorage that I know now is much like any other city of half a million people. It is still a wonderful place with a view of the Chugiak Mountains that is outstanding. I miss those mountains and, when the weather is right, you can see Denali to the North and Mt. Redoubt and Mt. St. Augustine to the South.

Packing List

by Thomas_akman

Something easy to carry. Do not carry what you do not need but carry what you must have to be Warm ,dry, safe. Most of you will find it Cold here, so if you do not bring a coat plan on buying one. A Hat to protect from Sun and Rain. SUN BLOCK. It is cool so you will not feel yourself getting burnt. Also Bug dope is a must. If you don't know Diaper wipes the uncented type have many uses. Use your head I need not say more. Perfume is not a good ideal in the bush!!! Tripod, Long range Zoom lens, Lots of Film. Rain Gear for camera. If in the Bush A gun is a good Ideal, The Bears on disney are someones pet. Not what you will find here. Please remember this Alaska is Very Stunning however if you are unprepared you can die here. If you fall in our water in most places you have less than 5 minutes to live. Wild animals here are really Wild. Moose kill more people than bears do. Disney is a tv show 'not real'.

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and City Tour

by AKDamien

With daily trips to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center including the entree fees. The best service that I found when my folks came to visit for Anchorage City Tours and surrounding was Alaska Transportation Service. These guys had all kinds of options. They have a daily Anchorage City Tour and a tour that also goes to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center near Girdwood the local ski town. They have shuttle rates or private vehicle day charters for groups of all sizes.
They also service the bigger cruise ships in Whittier, Seward and Anchorage as well as Denali National Park and Talkeetna.
Try these guys out!

Blueberries Atop the Cliffs

by kusiqstutik

Summer local rituals include berry picking--wild strawberries, blues, crowberries, salmonberries, wild raspberries, low- and high-bush cranberries--all across Alaska. Southcentral certainly has its share.

One of my favorite spots is in the unlikeliest of places. Y'gotta not mind climbing, or at least be able to climb, cliffs, plus NOT zing by this stretch of highway on your way to Seward or Homer!

On the Seward Highway heading south, there's a stretch of rock cliffs on the right hand side before you reach the Turnagain Pass. Climb up that, and in a good blueberry summer, there'll be bushes covered with berries, all along those cliffs.

If you're in a hiking mood, you can take a goodly hike off of there, as well--just watch out for bears, and wear water proof boots 'cause it gets boggy back there.

Why am I sharing this location? 'Cause when it's a great berry picking year, there aren't enough hours in the day for me and my family to finish picking all that we'd like (hey, there's our fishing, too!)....
