Thunderbird Falls Alaska - Great Memories

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty ONE Group 65491

 

When I started traveling up to Alaska on a regular basis in 2014, Thunderbird Falls was one of my first places I took videos and photographs.

The reason was because Thunderbird Falls was only approx. 20 miles north of Anchorage and every time we drove to Wasilla we always passed the turn off to the falls.

It's a easy hike about 2 miles in from the parking lot and no real steep hills to walk. Although when I took this video footage I climbed across steep rocks and slippery areas to find a spot that really caught my eye.

Since this video was taken and photograph we have hiked in to take a look several more times. At one time about half way down the trail some other hikers were taking photographs of a mother brown bear and to cubs catching fish along the river approx. 30 feet down from the cliff.

Hello William ...

You are so very right!

I have spoken to locals that have lived in Alaska all their life and they say they could never see the whole state in a lifetime.

Hi Bob Robert Vegas Bob Swetz Alaska is NOT on my bucket list because you have snow in the winter and bugs in the summer. Tell me I wrong and I will change my attitude.

Impressive video VB, great lens on your camera for that incredible zoom.

Though we have lots of waterfalls in Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, I have never seen a bear fishing in one.
