We checked the weather and it looked favorable for a bike ride. The weather man said once the fog burned off it would be cloudy with only a chance of rain. So we headed out shortly after lunch to check out the famous trail.
Anchorage as seen from the trail
There are many access points to the trail and we chose to catch it from Earth Quake Park around the 2 mile mark. Earth Quake Park has several information plaques about the 1964 earthquake and resulting tsunamis. Although Anchorage was hit pretty hard by the 1964 earthquake and tsunami, Seward and Portage, south of Anchorage fared even worse.
Our ride totaled nearly 20 miles and was fairly flat. Although the trail follows the coast line for almost the whole length of the trail, the views are limited due to the heavy tree and brush growth.
Wow! Blue sky. Haven't seen this for a while!!
Although there was some blue sky, the clouds are still hiding Denali which can been seen from Anchorage on a clear day.
I'm looking forward to exploring some of the other parks and trails in the Anchorage area..weather pending. The forecast is for more clouds and rain over the next few days. Ugh!
