Pipeline and Riverboat

There is a public viewing and information area very near to us where you can actually touch a section of the Trans Alaska Oil Pipeline.  I couldn’t reach it but Bernie could.

After that we went for a scenic 3-hour river cruise aboard an authentic sternwheeler on the Chena River which was very interesting and fun.

The Discovery tour stopped at a little fishing village where we watched presentations of native history.  We could walk around and see demonstrations of other things like how they caught and smoked the salmon, how they lived and survived the cold.  There were reindeer there too.

Another stop was at a sled dog demonstration where we watched from the boat.  The dogs were so excited and eager to run.  Since there is no snow now they pulled an ATV around.  They love it.
