You will ride through part of the old town of Seward that was destroyed by the great Alaskan earthquake of 1964. You will hear the stories of the people who lived through it. Our horses will then take you to the shore of the bay where the wildflowers meet the ocean. The bird life of this area is very diverse, active and up close.
