We got to Anchorage and checked into our hotel. Our friends were on a later flight, so we decided to take a walk. We were told to go to the trail and we are we did. It is an easy walk and the tide was out, so we could see the mud flats. According to the tide table, there is a 38' difference in tides. The bay is shoal so the mud flats go on for a long way.
The path is a paved one, and mostly, I would think, a bike path.
The people along the way are very friendly and seemed to want to talk to visitors and exchange stories, a very pleasant way to meet locals.
The views are fantastic. I only had one lens with me, and that is a regret. I could have taken more interesting photos.
Part of the trail is on the final approach to the seaplane landing area. They tell me that, on average, 800 seaplanes land here a day. This is a easy to believe but we were there on a nice Sunday and there was a line up of these planes. For me (I fly) it was an amazing sight.
If I were going to do it again, I would bring more lenses and rent a bike. I would also bring repellent with DEET.
