Another must do for my trip to Alaska was to see this park and the history of the 9.2 earthquake which occurred back in 1964. The hike along the trail offered some phenomenal views of both downtown Anchorage and the water ways. At one point in the trail, hikers could see the cliff and original height of that part of town before it fell in the five-minute quake. There are some markers and signs that give lots of information about the quake and show what things used to be like before and after.

I still can not believe what had happened when the 1964 earthquake did to Anchorage. The park really showed you what had happened.

The tour guide showed us how she could stand with one foot on one side of the dmajor fault line and the other foot on the other side. Seeing the 20-foot drop from the 1964 earthquake was botjh awe inpriring and a little frightning.

We were able to see the aftermath of an earthquake and the damage it caused. The history provided was sad.

We were staying nearby in an airport hotel, so drove out one morning for a walk in the park. The memorial is informative and visually moving. If you are in Anchorage, check it out.

This stop was part of a tour. We stopped here for a short amount of time while the driver gave us a brief history of the earthquake.

We only had a short time to explore the park, if we had more time to really go into the park we might have appreciated it more.
