Sunday Ethan, Simon and I drove down to Kincaid Park. I had extremely high hopes for accessing the Turnagain Arm, the closest we could possibly be to the ocean…or waterfront. But alas our efforts were squashed when we hiked a good way through forest and gnat clusters, tripping on roots systems and sweating in our denim, when we glimpsed the water from a high point. It was still so very faraway. We decided to be wise and turn around before we were truly winded, knowing the journey back would be a doozy regardless. So tell me, Alaska, how does one reach the coastline? So far it has been unattainable in every way.
