Up Ship Creek without a paddle

Ship Creek

Anchorage may be the big city, but that doesn’t stop the residents from dropping everything and donning hip waders when the salmon are running. The hotel we stayed in on our brief overnight in Anchorage was right on Ship Creek, and the salmon started running just a day or two before we arrived.

It’s all about the fish, even at the public restrooms. Note: Dollys are Dolly Vardens, a type of char. Chums are one of the five types of Alaskan salmon.

    • Thanks, Deb! You should write about your travels. I write them mostly for me and Marcus. We love to go back over them afterwards. Brings back great memories!
