After my workout, I hustled at the hotel to get showered and changed to meet my parents to take the shuttle to the Alaska Native Heritage Center. It was about a 20 minute ride and allowed us to see the rest of Anchorage, that isn't designed for tourist. The center was interesting with first person accounts, artifacts, present day natives, and model homes for the states different native people.

I decided that I was going to stay up to watch the sunset- which was at 10:41pm. Between the time difference and the busy days, I have been sleeping by then most evenings. But, since it was our last night in Anchorage, I wanted to see the sunset over the Cook Inlet before left. So at 10:30 I headed down the street to Elderberry Park to watch the sunset over the mountains.
It was beautiful. There were many other people with the same idea, and we were not disappointed. A nice way to end the evening, and mark the next part of the trip.
