Hope, Alaska and Harding Icefield Hike

We hiked up to the Harding Icefield the other day. On our way we saw 2 black bears and a marmot (see below). The sight was spectacular, even on a cloudy day.

We went white water rafting in Hope, Alaska the other day. We spent the night in this great little cabin, and had a wonderful time. We dont have any actual rafting pics because we could not take a camera, but we do have one picture that we bought from them.

catching dinner for the summer

Ryan got to go fishing, and did great!! He caught 3 halibut, but threw one back because you can only keep 2. One was a 25 lbs, and the biggest catch of the day!! He also caught red snapper (aka rock fish). We will not go hungry this summer!!

Sea Life Center and Homer, AK

Ok...this is a pic of Ryan while hiking Mt. Marathon. It doesnt seem too enjoyable, huh? Then some pics of an eagle we saw on the beach in Homer. I dont know why they are sideways.

This is a Russian Orthodox Church in a small town on the way to Homer, and another sideways eagle.
These are our Homer pics. The Homer spit is 5 miles and the "end of the road". Its a bunch of art shops, fishing charters and food on a board walk. Also, since there is alot of shopping to do in Homer, they made this bench. The "Husbands waiting bench" (haha!).

We saw them weighing and fileting the halibut in Homer too. Also, we stopped at the Kenai River just to take some pictures because it was so beautiful. The bluest river I've seen.

The Sawlty Dog Saloon is a very unique place. Met some more Alaska "characters", and watched the first NBA playoff game. Also, we left our mark this time by adding the dollar bill below. There were dollars all over the walls!!!

Pics from the Sea Life Center
We got to watch while they fed this Steller sea lion. She is HUGE!! It's funny now because we see them all the time swimming in front of the lodge. But I guess this one was injured and in rehab.
