Taku Lake, Anchorage

Taku Lake is one of our favourite spots to visit near our house.  It is a great lake for Steve to practice his fishing, has a trail around it perfect for a nice stroll and is home to a busy beaver and muskrat that can always be seen swimming from one end of the lake to the other.  Around 9pm on a warm summer’s night the lake turns into something out of a painting, making it the perfect place to practice my photography.

Taku means "(place) where geese gather" or "where geese set down." It is named for the subsistence resource (wild Canada geese) that the shores of this inlet afford seasonally.
