So on friday the weather took a turn for the better and after some heavy fog, it completely cleared out and was gorgeous! So I took the family out for a hike and afterwards we drove up to Eklutna Lake to spend a little time in her fabulous waters. This hidden gym is spectacular. Her waters are an incredible blue and she is surrounded on all sides by some marvelous mountains. This time of year she is also showing the start of some terrific colors as the leaves begin changing on the mountains, which only adds to her beauty. If you are looking for a nice day trip from the Anchorage area, this is lake worth the drive. During the summer you can rent bikes and kayaks, hike around the lake on a well groomed trail, camp in a maintained campground, or simply come up with a lawn chair and sit on her shore and take in the beauty and serenity that is Eklutna Lake.
