Girdwood is a small ski resort community in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains in the Chugach Mountains near the end of the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet.

In the surroundings you can see many glaciers if the weather allows, i did not see anything:)) Lots of possibilities are available if you want to spend your spare time here including hiking, skiing in the winter and fishing. Not too far from the post office you will find nice hiking trails i guess the could have been better in sunny weather.

Pay attention, lots of bears in the are especially in the berry-season!
