Picture Postcard – Anchorage Alaska

The winter nights get long in Alaska.

Or so it seems by the entries in this public art display of Wild Salmon on Parade back in 2007. Having just finished a bike tour with outfitter AlaskaBike, we were enjoying the sites in Anchorage and spotted the parade entries.

This little lovely is called The Salmon Hooker. Based on the wild outfits sported by the school of 30 salmon swimming through downtown, Alaskan nights can get very creative too…
