Once we had a nearly full load we drove back to Anchorage through the rain but it was dry when we returned to the Hilton Hotel. From here I walked nine blocks up E Street to find the steam engine on display on 9th and E Street.

An outdoor hockey rink waiting for winter. I returned to the Hilton and got my computer out of storage and did the pictures for this story. I met Robin and we walked over to the monument for two last pictues in Alaska.

My last views from Alaska. We walked back to Hilton where I got my bags out of storage then lost Robin so I walked back to the Guesthouse Inn and Suites. I worked on the story in the lounge until Robin and I went to have dinner. We relaxed before I put the corrections into the story then I posted it on my web site and Robin and I took the shuttle to the airport then went to Security. We waited for our flights.

9/23/2013 I had Flight 94 to Seattle and then Flight 524 to Santa Ana. Winston Walker picked me up and took me home ending the best NRHS 2013 Convention I have ever been to yet.
