This is a sometimes strenuous activity that involves walking approximately 5-6 miles up and downhill with approximately 500-foot elevation gain on the return leg of the trip, on gravel trail and uneven, sometimes boggy terrain. Carrying your camera gear over this distance adds to the physical activity. Weather conditions may range from rain, wind, and sun, and temperatures from 25°F [-4 °C] to 50°F [10°C]. This Anchorage photo tour departs in all weather (barring a weather advisory). Some of the best photo ops happen during rain, snow or fog, and wildlife tends to be more active in cool, wet weather.
