Glaciers, Flies and Goodbyes in Seward Alaska

The entire Kenai Peninsula is absolutely gorgeous, and one of our major stops to explore the area was Seward Alaska.  Seward is a port town and is bordered on one side by the Kenai Fjords National Park.  There are tons of places to visit in the area and lots of little fishing coves to find.  Seward is a really neat area of Alaska, although not our favorite of the whole Alaska tour. Hiking to Exit Glacier As we mentioned, the Kenai Fjords National Park is just outside of Seward, so while we were there we wanted to check it...

Boondocking in Portage Alaska

After leaving the campsite near the Turnagain Arm, we headed down Portage Glacier Road to find a campsite for a few days while we explored that area.  The road follows the Portage Creek all the way down to Portage Lake, and the entire area is very lush and beautiful.  We highly recommend visiting the area if you are heading that way. As we explored Portage Glacier Road, we found that there were actually quite a few boondocking campsites in the area.  We were hoping for one on the water!  While we did find a few that were on the...
