First Days in Alaska

That old white line
is friend of mine
And it's good time
we've been making
Right now I'm rollin' down
the open road
And the daylight
will soon be breaking.
-Neil Young 

We stop in Hope on the Kenai Peninsula on the first day to watch people fishing for the incoming salmon.

 In the afternoon we take a three hour raft trip out of Cooper's landing on the Kenai River.

 So today I walked seven miles in the morning down a lonely frontage road near Ephrata, Washington on I-90.

We discover in Homer that halibut fishing is not possible without a reservation this year, so we take an all day trip to the fishing village of Seldovia.

 Carol, Danny, Doris Les and Susie. Danny and Susie are my younger cousins.

The tides in Seldovia can be 20 or more feet.

 The Ocean House Inn in Homer has a nice view of the Homer Spit, Cook's Inlet and mountsins with glaciers.

We take a drive up the Skyline drive looking for picyures.
