We have only one full day in mid-October.
Arrive ANC Friday afternoon and leave just after midnight Saturday.
Not into doing city stuff /museums. Want to get outside and possibly see some wildlife.
We were thinking of doing doing a scenic drive to Seward, stopping along the way to possibly do some short hikes, (have a good map with tons of trails listed -- could use some reccomends), ..... the Sealife Center, lunch in Seward, coffee in Girdwood, and back in ANC in time for a late dinner before our flight.
Does this sound like a good plan?
Is the ANC-Seward drive 2 1/2 hours (without stops)?
I grew up in Buffalo so not afraid to drive in snow or ice, but is that road always pretty clear (suv 4x4)?
If not, what would be a good alternate plan?
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
Crossing our fingers for the rain to stop and the snow to come : )
