Paxson Alaska



It was easy to remember where these pictures were taken because we stayed at the worst motel I've ever stayed in. I knew we were in trouble when we walked into our room and there was a sign that said something like "Please don't clean your fish in the sink or bathtub". :) It was really hot that day and the room had no AC. The windows were covered with screen wire but it had holes in it so the mosquitoes could get into the room. My daughter slept with my wife and she was completely under the cover, even though it was around 90 outside, so the mosquitoes couldn't get to her. Once in a while I would hear her say "I hear one (a mosquito) Mom, get it". :) Why did we stay there....because there was nothing else for probably 250 miles. However, if I had know it was that bad I would have slept in the car. We've laughed about it several times since but it wasn't funny then.

What is wrong with cleaning your fish in the bathtub or sink :-) It is still not as bad as the one we stayed in coming home last year.

lol..yea, that sign about cleaning the fish would have made me hesitate!! When we would travel to Canada every year as a kid..I always thought that if the light bulb in the room had a switch (and not a pull chain)to it..that meant we were staying in a up scale place!! ha ha!
These experiences always seem to be the ones we laugh about later..I bet you did have a good time on that trip as your pictures sure show it to be a beautiful place!!

The motel may have been horrible but the scenery is very grand. If we ever get that way I'll sleep in the car.
