The Sinister Story Behind This Popular Alaska Beach Will Give You Chills

Anchorage, as its name suggests, is a port city. Situated right on the coast of the Cook Inlet, the city is surrounded by ocean water. Kincaid Beach is a great spot near the city with a large sandy beach where many come to play in the sand and have bonfires. Beyond the sandy beach are miles of smooth, innocent looking mudflats that seem easy to walk across at low tide. But these mudflats are brutal and have taken many lives. Tragedy has led to individuals being stuck in the mud when the icy tides flood back in. The chilling story of this popular area will make your blood run cold.
