    I am looking to do some CPE in Anchorage July 14-19. Would like to get some photography work of the coastals out there, but not sure it is going to happen. Outside of Denali, any other locations around Anchorage to go find some wildlife? Other things to do in Anchorage?

    Will be staying at the Hotel Captain Cook if that matters. Should have access to a car.

    Humpy's downtown has good beer batter Halibut. Oomingmak co-op downtown has unique Musk Ox scarfs for gifts. Have not been there in summer so that is all I can offer.

    Sockeye running pretty strong by then, swarms of eagles and some brownies can be found down on the Kenai pen. Hatchers pass is a nice afternoon place to visit, may see some moose and other critters. Turnagain arm, Hope cutoff.....lots of places to go explore in the area.
