We moved on the 31st July to Soldotna for a 9 day stay so we could get some serious fishing in and catch some serious salmon on the famous Kenai River. But there there was also to be some sight seeing, of course, and taken in some of the history of the area. After all it on the coast of the Cook Inlet, Capt James Cook, that is.

At this stop the McDougall's split off from us and go their separate way. From here on out it's the Fuller's and Adler's.

We chose Soldotna for the location on the peninsula as it is half way down, making any sight seeing an easy drive.
