Recently a small baleen whale beached near Kincaid Park in Anchorage, Alaska. If you can stand the smell, it’s well worth a visit to see the decomposition process in action.
I hiked with a friend northwest from the Kincaid Chalet along the Coastal Trail until we reached the bluff trail, then down to the beach. After turning left and walking along the water, the dead whale’s aroma starts to reach you quite quickly! Scattered pieces of blubber and skin will lead you right to the spot.
