Kincaid has great snow right now, but the Mize loop past Chelle’s turn is getting really snow bare.
I took my first ski of the season on the Campbell Creek greenbelt. I started around mile zero and was surprised how much snow remained from our first snowfall.
The base was thin and my rock skis were perfect. I’m glad I didn’t wear my nice skis. There was enough snow to glide nicely, but the baskets on my ski poles didn’t always hit snow and I could feel the pavement below.
As expected, the bridges and tunnels didn’t contain snow but I popped my skis off and walked through those. Just like in years past, the trail on the north side of Taku Lake was very thin. (It gets so much direct sunlight.) I stopped here and turned around.
A humpback whale yearling washed up on shore at Kincaid Beach. I’ve never seen the Kincaid chalet parking lot so full. There was so much foot traffic down to see the whale, you didn’t need to ask for directions.
The Alaska fall is here and all the beauty can be seen on the singletrack trails of Kincaid Park.
