  Chugach S. P. Turnagain Arm
by sue&gene

If you drive Highway 1 southeast from Anchorage, you will be driving beside Turnagain Arm. This was one of the prettiest drives we took. The Arm is a narrow extenstion from Cook Inlet. It was given its name by Captain Cook when had to turn his boat to exit it because he did not find a river. As we drove we stopped to watch for the Bore Tide and also hiked in Chugach State Park.

Directions: Highway 1 southeast from Anchorage.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
