Since we were already more than halfway there, we headed down to Girdwood and check out the Virgin Creek waterfalls. This isn't a well known "hike" since it's a ways off the other more travelled trails in the area, although it is well worth the little jaunt from the parking area.
To get there: drive down Alyeska Hwy until you cross over the Glacier Creek bridge. The first street you will come across is Timerberline Drive. Take that right and follow it to the very end. There, you will find space to park four vehicles or so. The trail is approximately two tenths of a mile. It parallels the creek and there are steep drop-offs, so hold on tight to your little chickitties. Before you know it, you'll have the splendor of the falls in front of you.
Tired little puppy.
