When It’s Springtime in Alaska01 Feb 2013, by A SONG A DAY in
I heard that the Red Dog Saloon drinkin’ establishment in Juneau is the oldest man-made tourist attraction in Alaska. The Red Dog was founded in Juneau’s mining days. Shout outs to the 49th State, The Caribou Crawl and Kodiak Rugs. A #1 hit for the late great storyteller Johnny Horton on the Country & Western charts. We took a bonafide musical sled dog ride through frozen tundra on this one.
