This is a picture of my son, Kier, taken last year about fifteen minutes from my front door in Anchorage. We ski down to the shores of Cook Inlet and then head up Turnagain Arm. It still amazes me that we live in a fairly large city but we can be in pristine wilderness like this in minutes.
Sidenote… In 1778, Captain James Cook was exploring the coast of Alaska looking for the Northwest Passage. He sent one of his subordinates, William Bligh (the same Bligh from HMS Bounty fame) down an unexplored arm of Cook Inlet in search of the Passage. When Bligh’s ship reached the end of the arm, they were forced to “turn again” and go back. Hence the name, Turnagain Arm.
