Hike: Chugach State Park, AK

Today was 69 degrees and partly sunny. Mark, Comet and I took a long hike though Chugach State Park, the third largest state park in the nation. This area was declared a park in 1970, it's 500,000 acres of the Chugach Range and the entire area is within the municipality of Anchorage. With a 5,000 vertical foot rise this wilderness area is filled with wildlife including moose, wolves, brown and black bear and more.

Later on we grabbed dinner at Moose’s Tooth, a local pizza joint. So what is an Alaskan pizza you ask? There were many to choose from but a blackened halibut pizza seemed like the right choice for this Chicago girl.
