|I didn't say seeing them was easy, that's Mt. Susitna in the background|
We rode to the bottom of the hill from Kincaid, then locked the bikes and walked the path to a decent place to descend to the beach. I'd never seen so many people down there. The closest car parking is about a mile away, so you have to want to come here.
And here's a view to the south. That's a dog in the water.
But we also saw moose. Actually, other people saw moose and pointed them out to us after we'd passed them. I think we saw four or five altogether.
I'm constantly amazed at how animals this big can manage to disappear in the background.
And here's Peter on a break on the way back. I took the picture because even though I read his blog, I wasn't sure until he mentioned it, whether he could still ride a bike. Or drive a car. He said as long as the medication is controlling symptoms, he can.
I'm normally more vague on the blog about friends I do things with, but Peter has a blog to help educate people - both with and without PD - about Parkinson's Disease. His comment when I told him why I took the picture was, that he forgets what people know and don't know about what he's able to do. We rode about 16 miles round trip from Westchester Lagoon
Peter's was interviewed as a cartoonist with Parkinson's Disease in the Washington Post recently. There are extremely talented and amazing people all around us in Anchorage. I hope the Board got a lot done this afternoon. It was a great day to be in Anchorage.
