A good way to while away the time in Anchorage and relax. Apparently moose are often seen on the path, though I think this might be further from the town centre - we didn't see any.

After flying this was a welcome place to stretch and see the lovely view too. We walked for an hour and didn't see it all.

I saw a moose in the early evening on the more remote portion of the trail past the airport. I saw no whales but I was on bicycle and did not spend extended time sitting along the shore line.
