Moose Pass is an interesting community that I like to visit a few times each year. It's located only 100 mles south of Anchorage. The speed limit is reduced as you come into town to 35 mph. If they didn't do that, you'd fly by hardly noticing it was there
It's a quiet place surrounded by the still snow covered Chugach Mountains. Alaska Rail Road still goes through it, but it doesn't stop anymore. Trail Lake Lodge is the larget establishment. It was first built in 1948. It now has a motel, bar and resturant. There's guided fishing trips, kayaking and birding tours done from here.
Isn't this the kind of church you picture for a small town. There's a population of about 200. Of everyone I've meet, they are about as nice as you would expect from small towns people. Everyone waves, says hi and offers to help if needed.
If you're looking for a wild time, this isn't the place. If you are looking for some rest, relaxation, fishing, kayaking, birding, good food and conversation, this is the place.
