The drive from Anchorage, Alaska down to Seward, Alaska is a beautiful drive with views of water, mountains, and glaciers and regular sightings of whales and goats along the way. While the drive can be done in under two hours, we took the better part of a day, making several stops along the way. One of those stops was to hike the Bird Ridge Trail. The trail is a challenging, steep climb but the views are well worth it. Our timing was fortunate in that we got nice views from the top before the clouds rolled in. As we hiked down, I was busy taking photos and my wife was leading the way. I did not notice when we accidentally veered off the trail and started following a trail frequented more often by mountain goats than hikers, as it was quite steep and narrow. However, we eventually found our way back to the main trail and it made for an interesting adventure.
