We leave you with this image of a beautiful sunset along the coast of Alaska for this last post featuring our trip there.
Chugach State Park is one of the largest state parks in Alaska, and it’s only about 40 minutes from downtown Anchorage. We took a short walk along the Iditarod Trail in Eagle River Valley inside the park and came upon this glorious view. We even saw a moose grazing not more than 15 yards away! […]
