Beach Lake

AAAAAAlaska you humble us with your astounding beauty. This might have been the most beautiful day for a Trek to date! The sun was rising, the temps were in the 20s and a light mist rose over the lake. The trees and ground were covered from last nights gentle dusting of fresh powdery snow. We had some new parents join and connections made. Kids trying snowshoes for the first time, sleds being pulled and ridden. We primarily hiked the perimeter of the lake on the frozen ice, but made time to take a quick tangent off to the beach of Cook Inlet with a view of both the Talkeetna and Chugach Mountain Ranges. We must have caught the tide as the water was moving great big ice chunks by at at rapid speed. I tried taking video, but the kiddo on my back was bouncing. Beach Lake Trail is by far this groups favorite spot! We'll be back again, and again, and again.
