Cook inlet, just South of Anchorage.

Another shot of Cook inlet, with the tide going out. The tides around here drop about 20 feet in two hours. Between that and the river current, its about strong enough to rip off your arm if you tried to hold on.

This video clip taken about 1/2 mile down a hiking trail. I was screeming the whole way there and back to alert any bears of my presence.
Later I went fishing in "Tangle pond", across the road, and saw some fish jump, but caught none.

This rather lengthy video clip taken at the Steward inlet. Big cruise boats can be seen here. I did go fishing here, but again got nothing. I'm batting 0 in Alaska so far! There were a few guys snagging for them which is legal here, since the salmon can't get up the falls.

Remains from the 1964 earthquake which pretty much wipped out the whole area. Lots of wreckage can still be found. This was one of the most powerful earthquake ever measured at 9.1 - 15 times more powerful than the California quake of 1989.
