Anchorage – Eagle River July 16-18/2009

We  stayed 3 nights at Eagle River Campground in Chugach State Park about 12 miles from Anchorage. 

We attended a guided nature trail hike at the Eagle River Nature Center, The naturalist viewed with us many of the flowers, bushes and trees  that inhabit the area. She also mentioned that the Crows Pass Marathon was tomorrow. Participants run from Girkwood to Eagle River. It is a tricky and often torturous 24-mile journey over a mountain pass, through a river and across rocks, roots, snow glacier and scree. The next day we found out that the winners broke the record with 1st sub 3 hour time.

One day, we went  to Anchorage visit their Zoo, see the city and its parks.
