Flattop Mountain is beautiful – but one of the coolest aspects of the mountain is the view of the Cook Inlet, Turnagain and Knik Arms and the city of Anchorage. More than 40% of the people who live in Alaska live in Anchorage. (That’s approximately 295,000.)
Anchorage also has:
250 black bears, 60 brown bears and 2,400 Dall sheep (of which we saw none)
100 – 1,000 moose (depending on the season) of which I saw about nine and three ski jumps (which I didn’t use).
