Last few days in Homer have been fun, but the sun is out I’m planning to retrace some steps to see some of the country side I missed driving through rain storms. The tentative plan to head North then over to Valdez. From there to Wrangell-Elias National Park and through Canada down to Haines once more. From Haines I’ll be heading down to Juneau for a few days and then back to PR (or Bellingham). If anyone has suggestions of places to stop and see, please post a comment or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Checking out the massive salmon near a creek at Portage Glacier and noticed this friendly guy walking towards us. It was about 9:30′ish, so there wasn’t much light. Speed didn’t really get a glimpse, but he knew something was up and wanted to leave. Lots of wildlife the further south towards Homer I go. Moose are everywhere now, almost like deer back in Ohio.
Named after a Royal Mounted Canuck back in the day who mastered this trail by dog sled. The route was built in the 1950′s to connect the South to the Arctic as Oil exploration boomed. Apparently Dempster tackled this route more than 10 times in a single season by sled!
