21 #SoAnchorage Holiday Delights: #11, family photo opportunities like this one

Where else, my friends, do you have the chance to forgo the mall Santa and get your holiday photo taken with a massive stuffed moose? This here is Hank the Moose, perhaps the state’s most famous work of taxidermy. He moves around the state, but he is currently located at the 5th Avenue Mall near the AT&T store. Picture packages start at $20. Thanks toΒ my friends Evan and Annie and their little daughter Ellie gamely being my moose photo models.

PS: Baby Bjorn advises against riding moose with a baby in the carrier.

Here’s an outtake:
