Day Two Anchorage: Coastal Walk by Ann Treacy

You know you’re in a pretty city when the coastal walk also boasts some beautiful views of the mountains. While much of the day was spent working – we did get out for a nice walk. Because it’s February, we didn’t see a ton of actual coast – well at least in terms of water or sand. But the views are spectacular. And we could see one hearty boat trying to get to the dock.

We walked down the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. The trail is apparently 10 miles long – although we didn’t go nearly that far. One of my highlights was the moose warning sign. Lots of good advice on keeping away from moose – but of course that sets up an expectation. We didn’t see one – but we have two more days. The trail sort heads from downtown towards the airport along the coast. The homes that we passed were amazing. It’s a shared path for walkers and cross country skiers.

Also – lots of fun little urban art outbursts on our various walks.
