Loved seeing the murals in Alaska. Unfortunately, this one is in a built-up area so while you can see it, you can't see all of it at once.

We had almost past by when my bride noticed the mural on the side of the building. The detail was incredible. The only thing that made it average it the lines in the middle of your picture with the parking space numbers on them.

With all the whaling walls around the country this is still special. It is very well done and gives you information you can't get elsewhere.

A great mural. Shows a variety of whales as well as seals. Would have been lovely to see the Orca swimming in the water, but at least we were lucky enough to see the Humpback whales

Anchorage is a town that celebrates culture and history with visual art all over the little city. This beautiful mural is part of that tradition.

Beautiful wall painting on one of the 5th Mall building walls. Great picture to take home and easy to spot too. **FREE parking for 1 hour if you park at the Malls parking lot.
