Anchorage Park Series: Potter Creek to McHugh Part 1

Finally we’ve had a bunch of consistent nice days here in Anchorage – after wasting the first couple sitting in my back yard with some Alaskan Ambers I decided that I needed to get out and work off some of those calories. Having done part of Kincaid just weeks ago I went south – along the Seward Highway and stopped at the first trail I saw – Potter Creek Trailhead. It’s about 3.3 miles to the next trailhead, McHugh – so off I went with my gear, and water bottle… not really thinking about that 3.3 miles meant 6.6 miles roundtrip… but ah well. Potter is relatively easy walk with a lot of shade (which was very nice the day I went) and some really great views and miniature waterfalls.
Since this hike was long and I took quite a few pics that I was happy with I’m going to split this up into two parts. Part one today (obviously) and then part 2 next Friday – I’m going to try my damndest to keep to a weekly schedule on these posts – so please keep an eye out for them until the end of the year when I finally compile them together into a book.
For the camera people out there here’s what I carried in my bag.

  • Nikon D7000
  • Nikon 24-85 f2.8-4
  • Sigma 30mm 1.4
  • Nikon 50mm 1.8
  • And my favorite lens of all time the Tokina 11-16 2.8
