Around Anchorage

Trails in town

Hikers take in the sunset at about  11:30 p.m. on the 2008 summer solstice atop Flattop Mountain in Chugach State Park. Hiking Flattop is a solstice tradition for many in Anchorage and a way to enjoy some of the more than 19 hours of daylight.

Whether they're mild or wild, the trails of Anchorage and Southcentral Alaska have plenty to keep hikers or bicycle riders busy for an hour, a day or longer.

Wildlife viewing

Dall sheep along the Seward Highway at Windy Point ponder gawking tourists.

When it comes to urban wildlife, no place is like Anchorage. Moose, bears, salmon, and whales can all be seen in and around the city.
