Alaska: July 12-22, 2019

We flew to Kodiak on a 50-minute flight from Anchorage. We drove all of the paved road system, hiked in mossy temperate rain forest, watched Kodiak brown bears catch salmon, splashed along an ATV track to a fishing spot, and visited the tide pools.
Swan Lake Canoe Route
We stayed at an authentic Alaskan B&B before meeting our canoe guide. From the Swan Lake Canoe Route entrance, we paddled across across five lakes, and portaged our canoe and gear on short trails between them. We camped at Spruce Lake, and returned the next day without seeing any other people.
Kenai Peninsula
We stayed in a vacation rental in Moose Pass, a tiny town near the intersection of the Sterling Highway and the Seward Highway. We went hiking, rafted the Upper Kenai River, and drove to Seward for the day to visit glaciers.
