It was another beautiful but cool and windy day here at Denali State Park, once again, not to be confused with Denali National Park which we'll transfer to tomorrow. When I crawled out of bed at 8:00 a.m., our thermometer... Continue reading

First, I have to say that last night was the quietest Friday night we've ever spent in a public campground. Usually, the weekenders in public campgrounds get pretty loud and sometimes rowdy, but here it was almost like the campground... Continue reading

We slept wonderfully in our quiet campsite in K'esugi Ken Campground here in Denali State Park. When we finally got up, it was a very leisurely morning. Eventually, I hopped in the Jeep to go exploring. The George Parks Highway... Continue reading

Linda got up earlier than normal this morning, had her two cups of coffee and ran a couple of errands. I started getting things put away for today's move and Esther & Steve were doing the same. Linda returned and... Continue reading

Ever since our friend Darlene in Sitka came to our campground back in late May with part of her beachcombing collection from Nome, Linda made sure we could carve out some time in our schedule for her to go to... Continue reading

We had tossed around several options for our next few days of camping. We considered going to Hope on the Turnagain Arm south of Anchorage or to an RV park in Houston on the Little Susitna River north of Anchorage.... Continue reading

Not much to tell today. Linda & I slept in until about 10:00 a.m. Our freezer would get up to about 15 degrees overnight, and then we'd bring it back down to 5 - 7 degrees with the generator. We... Continue reading

It was another gorgeous day with temps in the low 70s and no wind. We still can't believe the weather we've had throughout the last month in the Kenai Peninsula. Linda walked down the trail to beachcomb around 10:00 a.m.,... Continue reading

Today, we left Soldotna and drove about 35 miles up the Kenai Spur road to the end of the pavement. The destination was the Discovery Campground in the Captain Cook State Recreation Area. It's a no hook-up campground and there... Continue reading

As planned, we were on the river this morning around 5:00 a.m. Two weeks ago there would have been about 40 people already there, but this morning there were only four. We had our choice of spots. But this morning,... Continue reading

We slept in this morning, and then we prepared to move. While we were getting ready, we got a text from Linda's Mom. Our big box of fish from Kodiak was delivered. She said "I've never seen so much fish!"... Continue reading

When we were here in Soldotna a couple weeks ago, Steve and I had good luck getting up really early and getting on the river around 5:00 a.m. and getting our limits of three. But since we got our increased... Continue reading

Originally, we were supposed to go to Real Alaskan Cabins & RV Park in Sterling, Alaska. We had a week reserved, and I was supposed to go backpacking on the Resurrection Pass Trail, a 38-mile, five-day hike. I was invited... Continue reading

It was a little hard to believe that we weren't going to fish today, but it certainly wouldn't hurt us to take a day off. So today was just camping. We didn't go anywhere and just enjoyed being outside. We... Continue reading

Steve picked me up at 9:00 a.m. in their motorhome, and we set out toward Seward. We had about a 50-mile drive. Esther and Linda just chilled and did some reading at our campsite. We found Samson Tug & Barge,... Continue reading

We booked three nights at the Russian River Campground on the Kenai Peninsula months ago. I was supposed to go on a backpacking trip starting August 5 in that same area, so I booked this campground hoping that we would... Continue reading

It was a lazy day at Mariner Park on the Homer Spit. We slept in, and didn't do anything too ambitious. Linda walked on the beach, and we watched the kite boarders on the ocean. I worked on photos and... Continue reading

With the news about the ferry strike still fresh, and with the lackluster fishing, we all decided to just hang out at the rental townhouse for the day. If we had to stay longer or if we had to fly... Continue reading
