Biking the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail

A popular thing to do in Anchorage is to walk, run, bike, etc....the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Tuesday the weather was pretty and Scott had off work so I suggested we bike the trail. It runs along the coast of Anchorage. Little did I know that it is 11 miles ONE WAY! So we ended up biking 22 miles total, which is A LOT for me! It took us 3 hours, but hooray for us..we did the WHOLE thing! I was so tired afterwards! That is the most I have ever biked in one day! I wanted to turn around many times, but Scott kept pushing me on. He said it wasn't that difficult to him (biking 22 miles, that is). Here is Jackson at the beginning of the bike ride, but at the end he was screaming crying.
Below is some of the beautiful scenery we saw while on the trail.

Now this as a picture worth taking here in Alaska....PURE SUN!! It doesn't happen too much here.

These were 2 guys on skis that had wheels. It was a weird sight because they did not have much clothing on and they were "skiing". It looked very hard!
Here is a sign for disc golf. I did not know this sport existed.
Jackson is watching a movie on my IPhone to help pass the 3 hours.

The trail goes right under where planes go in to land
A view of the city of Anchorage
A garden off the trail. There were some beautiful homes off the trail as well.

I'm so proud of you! I don't know if I could bike a mile right now, much less 22. The scenery is so beautiful!
