Thunderbird Falls


This weekend we went back to the Eklutna area and hiked less than a mile to the Thunderbird Falls. We got to use our rain gear for the first time as it was drizzling. Being so close to the ground made us very dirty, but the view was worthwhile.

TeKeela had to be carried for a little while as she does not like going through wooden bridges. Sometimes the openings between boards are to big for her little paws!


Anyway, this was a short and easy hike. Perfect for a typical rainy summer day in Alaska.

    You are troopers heading out, even in the rain! At least everyone had their rain gear. My daughter would not be a fan of that bridge at all. She’s not a fan of playground bridges that are high up and have little openings between the slats.

      It wasn’t that bad. In Alaska, if you wait for perfect weather you might end not doing anything. Ha! Happy WW.

        Oh goodness! Glad you get out there and make it happen then! 🙂

    Don’t blame her about the bridges…being so little, she could fall in between those planks! Glad you got out even in the bad weather.

    Looks like a great hike! Don’t worry Tekeela – The Mom hates those gaps too – her high heels always get stuck in them! 🙂

    That is one long wooden bridge! Wilhelm doesn’t seem to mind wooden bridges but metal grated bridges or stairs are his mortal enemy. Thanks sharing the lovely, wet hike!

    Happy 4th of July!

    What a great view, I’d have hiked it in the rain too! And, by the way you guys are too cute in your rain jackets!
