The Anchorage area has a lot of parks that they maintain. And one of these parks is out in the Chugiak area, the Beach Lake Park. When you head out to the park you head down a dirt road and if you are lucky you will spy moose or beaver but you will definitely see some beautiful scenery and at the end of the road is this charming lake. It isn’t overly big but it is quiet and does hold some fish, if that is what you are in the mood to do. My manchild and I were lucky enough to go down on a night(yes this picture was taken at night, 9:45pm to be exact) that was clear, calm and stunning.
