it is worth your time to come to Ship Creek. A quick stop gives you
a chance to see a little bit of wild Alaska sneaking into Downtown
Anchorage. (That is, if you can forget that this is a hatchery run,
and you don't notice the crowds, and the parking lots, and the bridges...)
I really don't want to be too hard on Ship Creek. It is a great opportunity
and resource for the city of Anchorage but it is not the "true"
