View Anchorage Alaska


I know this is my doggy bloggy but I know that you all are interested in Alaska.  Our ISP has some web cams throughout the city and here are a few shots we thought you might enjoy. Here is the link to our ISP web cam site to you can go and check it out any old time.  http://www.borealisbroadband.net/webcamultiview.htm

                                                   Midtown looking North in November

                                                 Same camera on a crisp October day

                                                                 Midtown looking east

                                                               Same camera in August

                                                        Same camera at night in April

                         These next three are of Mount Susitna or otherwise called Sleeping Lady



Mom was born and lived in a house that was on the bluff and had this exact view.  Unfortunately the house was demolished in a big earthquake.  Moms dad had a duck hunting cabin below Sleeping Lady and mom would hunt there with her dad every fall.  Man, I wish I could have met him. He loved dogs and passed that love on to mom.  The last three dogs he had were Welsh Terriers like our friend George the Lad.

                                                          Town Square, downtown in January

These next two shots are taken in McGrath, Alaska.  It is a village of about four hundred people in interior Alaska.  There are no roads to McGrath, you have to fly in and out.


                                   So there you have it. Hope you enjoyed my web cam tour.



  1. Thanks for the tour:)
    From today's picture, it doesn't look like Anchorage has a lot of snow, as I'm not seeing big piles along the road. Or has it all been trucked away?
    Lovely scenery, and is Sleeping Lady a sleeping volcano?

  2. Thanks, that was great! Love your new valentines header!


  3. I can see it is a big piece of land with lots of beautiful scenery.
    Thanks for sharing those pictures and I'm really interested in Alaska. To me, it's a far far land from where I'm.

  4. Cool tour Ryker! Your town is beautiful every month of the year :) Bet that was fun to fly into that little village. Did the plane have skis?

    Waggin at ya,

  5. The city does plow and haul the snow away to designated areas. They pile it all up and it doesn't all melt till August!
    We have several active volcano nearby but I don't think Sleeping Lady is a volcano.
    Yes, if you fly in the winter the planes have skis. Cool huh?

  6. Absolutely gorgeous views. That's a great example of how much things change from season to season.


  7. I sure did enjoy the web cam tour, so pretty there. :)

  8. Thanks for sharing. I've never been to Alaska, but my dad spent some time there years ago when he served in the Air Force. I remember his photos of the mountains and scenery, and have always thought it's an amazingly beautiful place.

  9. Alaska is so pretty! My grandparents went there quite a few times for vacation when I was younger.. I always asked them to bring me a moose!

  10. P.S. I replied to your email. I have read some excerpts from the book on Liver Disease in Dogs and incorporated some of the suggestions for Indy. Thanks for thinking of him!


  11. I love the shots of the city at night. It's so lovely with the lights twinkling.

  12. Wow... it's really gorgeous there. thanks for the tour!

  13. Loved it Ryker...what a beautiful countryside and city too...tks again!


Ryker is wiggling to hear your comments!
