As we trekked across from Oklahoma on our way to Alabama we stopped off at the small, historic town of Fort Smith.

The name of Walnut Grove is synonymous with the "Little House On The Prairie" TV series, although the Ingalls only lived there on two occasions for a total of four years.

Mind you we never expected this to be a beach type holiday. We had come to Alaska prepared, so we layered up and set off to the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage.
