Jul 7, 2017 - Off to Kenai on the west coast

After walking Daisy we dumped our tanks and took off to drive down the Seward Highway to the Sterling Highway and west to the Kenai Elks. Driving south we were along the glacial Chugach Mountain Range then turned west through the Kenai Mountains through the forests, past rivers and lakes of the Chugach National Forest. Once we turned onto the Sterling Hwy we caught sight of the Russian River and then the Kenai River which we followed through the heavily forested highway west to the coast past Sterling and Soldotna. As we neared the city of...

Aug 25, 2016 - Kenai (Beluga RV Park)

Stayed on cliff overlooking mouth of Kenai River in city of Kenai. Went to Soldotna for a few hours one day and tasted the best doughnut ever. Don't know what they do to them, but Marsha and Ron also agree best ever. Later went to some sort of preserve and did a short hike.

2016 Trip to Alaska

Aug 24, 2015 - Kenai Spur Road

Another fishing foray to Deep Creek and again we did not catch any fish. But the turkeys came back again. We drove into Soldotna for some groceries and a quick stop at a quilt store, and a couple of geocaches. We took a longer drive back along the bay. We stopped at a beach for the views. I started to walk out on the mud flats, but only got two steps before I started sinking. Not a good move! It was a beautiful day and both Iliana and Redoubt (both active volcanoes) were steaming. They looked gorgeous in the setting sun.

Jul 30, 2015 - Diamond M Ranch Resort

This perhaps the best RV Park we have visited on the trip. After we got in and settled we had a campfire with the owners Blair & Ronna Martin, their kids, an exchange student from Japan, and a previous exchange student from Spain who was studying to be a veterinarian. Everyone sat around and toasted marshmallows for S'mores or Doughboys. Shirley brought two birthday cakes for my birthday which was shared by all. The owners told us that the park in an ongoing project and shared the history. Blair's dad and mom were professors in the lower...

Jul 25, 2015 - Kenai AK – Walmart Parking Lot

On the road again, we got back on our original schedule and headed for Kenai. There is supposed to be good salmon fishing here and they are running now so Rog hoped to get some salmon to add to the freezer. He couldn’t find a good spot for it and the fishing regulations are so confusing, he decided to try some place else, so we moved on. (Kenai, by the way, is the halfway point on our journey. Once we left there, we were headed south (mostly) on our return trip to Arizona.)

Jul 19, 2015 - Captain Cook State Park, Russian River Nat'l Forest, and Kenai

Tuesday, July 14, 2015 We traveled to Captain Cook State Recreation Area and spent the night then we moved on to Russian River. But on the way we stopped at the Moose Is Loose Bakery in Soldotna and bought more apple fritters and cinnamon buns. Yum Yum!! These cinnamon buns are better than any others we have tried in Alaska or Canada!! If you are ever in Alaska stop here and you won’t be disappointed. Wednesday, July 15, 2015 Russian River National Forest Campground got a double spot for $14. We went to the Cooper Landing Museum and then to...

Jul 1, 2015 - Living with the Eagles

Living with the Eagles We arrived at the camp ground around 2pm. When we made reservations, I asked for ocean front property. They have about 6 prime spots and guess what, we got one of them. We are perched on a cliff overlooking Cook Inlet. We are a couple hundred feet above sea level (depending on whether it is high or low tide). There must be thousands of sea gulls. There is a pine tree growing out of the cliff and tops out just above ground level for us. It is less than 100 feet from where the motor home is parked. In this tree top...

Jul 29, 2014 - Alaska Tour - Kenai, AK - Stop #15

Hello Everyone, Well, today we took our final drive on our Alaska Tour from Homer to Kenai, AK. It was a short 100 mile trip north and is where we will all break up and travel our own way home! Kenai, Alaska is known for its great river inlet where the salmon are squeezed down into a fairly narrow area making great ‘Dip Net’ fishing on both banks! Dip Net fishing is where you use a huge 4-5 foot diameter net on a 20 foot long pole to place across the stream and catch fish right into your net! Many local Alaskans come here to catch their...

Jul 1, 2014 - Heading for the Kenai Peninsula

We enjoyed visiting with a couple from Minnesota last night who had just returned from the Dalton Highway. After hearing of their adventure, we have decided to do it! Today we went south out of Anchorage for a few miles on the Seward Highway, then we decided to save the experience until Sharon comes. Now we have decided to do the Haul Road, aka the Dalton Highway. We will head up the Elliott and then the Dalton, starting from Fairbanks on Thursday morning. Do not expect to hear from us. There may be service at Coldfoot Campground on the...

Jul 26, 2013 - Kenai Peninsula - Homer, Soldotna, Kenai

This area certainly had its beauty and its charm, but I didn't enjoy this area as much as we have other areas. Homer was a nice fishing village but the town seemed to be totally engaged in this sport. We did, however, have a great lunch ... mine was a salmon burger and smoked salmon chowder with wild rice ... yum!

Jul 11, 2013 - Kenai City

Today we started working our way back toward the Yukon. This should take about two weeks at the rate we are travelling. Today we drove north about 150 km to the city of Kenai on the Kenai Peninsula, population about 7,000. It was a beautiful warm day. Temperature 26 C. I think it is always cold out on the Homer Spit because of its location on the water and the wind. Homer Spit was lovely, but cold. It is nice to be warm after two weeks of cold weather. Before the Russians came here, Kenai was an Athabascan Indian Village. The Russians...
