AECapital City Weekly There is a place where you can approach a bald eagle with wings outstretched and watch it in perfect stillness nearly inches from its sharply curved beak. Walk on and enter the past through a portal where history comes to life before your eyes. Seek further and find the tools, trades and lifestyles of peoples who have lived before us and influence us still. This place is where I find inspiration. This place is the Alaska State Museum.
