If you find yourself there, don't pass up the chance to stop at The Moose is Loose for some donuts. My friend and fellow Alaskan, Michelle, told me of it and I'm glad we took her suggestion. It did not disappoint!! Thanks Michelle!
When we made contact with our friend, he told us about a herd of caribou in the area.
We dropped what we were doing and hopped in the van. We were glad they were still in the same spot!
On the way back to where we were staying, we finally saw a moose!!
I love this one with the fire hydrant!
We also took a side trip to Kenai. I always enjoy seeing this Russian Orthodox Church.
This church was completed in 1896!
The sign below is in front of this old house, now a coffee house.
Log ruins nearby.
St Nicholas Memorial Chapel.
This clumping of historical buildings is just a short walk to this beautiful view!
I'm glad we had a chance to stop at this area before heading back to Anchorage.
Throughout, you might have noticed all the rainy pictures, except for a few. Well, all that rain was adding up and the Kenai River was rising.
Take a look at this.
I'm sure you see the problem here.
The Kenai River is already a swift river. You add more water and it was roaring in some areas.
Jerry was the photographer for the majority of the time on this trip. He did such a great job capturing everything. Even when we had to stop for road construction.
I just love this shot of the boat on still water.
That about wraps up our trip of Alaska. I'll probably share a few more random, favorite pictures.
We sure had an incredible time. And it's been fun to go back through the pictures and reminisce.
I hope you've enjoyed it!
