We were lazing around on a Sunday afternoon and decided to go for a hike. We live in Alaska, so it is pretty much win - win. Usually we go up to Flat Top or down to the Coastal Trail or just down the trail by our house. My husband likes more of a wilderness hike and I like to be within shouting distance of another human or at least where there is cell phone because I am TERRIFIED of bears. So we went to Far North because it is the perfect time of year for a hike there. Lots of choices for altitude, direction, roaring rivers that are usually streams, some ice and lots of sunshine through bare branches. And the bears are ostensibly asleep. A couple of people have died out there in the years we have lived here, and there are a ton of bears that pass through on their way to eat from the rich peoples' grabage cans. There was even a bear fatality recently. But Far North is 10 minutes from our condo. I mean it is like a left turn, a right turn, half a kilometer and BOOM perfect wilderness. It was so beautiful. I love living in Anchorage!!!
