Anchor Point Boat Launch

This is a bit different than your typical boat launch. The 3 min video depicts about 6 minutes of activity of some very efficient launch workers. We were a bit taken aback when we signed up for a halibut fishing expedition and saw this process.

Works like a charm though.

Bear Mtn Hike

In July of 2014, I hiked up Bear Mountain in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge near Cooper Landing, AK. Here is a brief video of my hike and the views I experienced when I reached the end of the trail.

Kenai River Rafting Trip

While working at Wildman's in Cooper Landing, AK, I was invited to join some friends (Bobbi, Mike and Fred) and raft down the Kenai River through the canyon to Skilak Lake. We chose to use Alaska Wildlife Adventures as our guide.

Here is a brief sampling of what we experienced.

A Bunch of Grizzlies

We decided to go to the Russian River in Cooper Landing, AK to see if we could see some brown bears (grizzlies). The experience greatly exceeded our expectation.

08-01 Dipnetting on the Russian River

In September, our daughter Andi and I joined Rudy and JJ on their dipnetting excursion on the Russian River in Cooper Landing, AK. It was a long anticipated opportunity and we weren't disappointed.

Please join us on this adventure.

Top of the World Highway & Chicken, AK

Please join us while we give you a glimpse of the drive on the Top of the world highway and Chicken, AK.

As we drove past miles of burned out forest, we remembered back to 2004 when we entered Alaska and smelled smoke. 6 million acres of wildfires scorched the vast forests.

We were awestruck by the sight of the forests that went on forever after we went beyond the burn area.

The condition of the dirt road turned us around before we reached the border, but we came away amazed.

1st Day of Salmon - Cooper Landing, AK

The feeling around Cooper Landing on the opening day of salmon (reds - sockeye) is amazing. Everyone is excited, happy and anxious. Please join me as I visit various locations along the Kenai.

Moose on Skilak

Moose Encounter

While on a Wildman's shuttle, Jack and I enjoyed this moose moment.

The Caribou

As we were driving down the Tok Cutoff, we encountered this herd of caribou strolling along the highway. It was an awesome welcome to Alaska.

Cooper Landing Gang

The Cooper Landing Gang is set for Reno. We all gathered at the SpringHill Suites to kickoff the ride to Yuma.

George and Maureen are heading to Colorado Springs.

Kenai Fjord Tour

The first of 3 tours of the Kenai Fjords National Park. We left out of Seward and spent a spectacular 8 hours seeing astounding scenery and wildlife that included:

orcas
humpbacks
harbor seals
sea lions
dall dolphins
eagles
puffins
black bear
otters
and more birds than we could possibly name

Fort Nelson to Watson Lake

After a harrowing drive from Dawson Creek to Pink Mountain, we needed a relaxing drives. This leg was not one of them.

Bear Attacking Car in Cooper Landing

While shuttling vehicles for Wildman's in Cooper Landing, we witnessed this brown bear (grizzly) not too pleased with all the attention. We were on the Sterling Highway about 4 miles west of Wildman's.

Leg 7 - Dawson Creek, BC to Pink Mountain

Dawson is the official Mile 0 of the Alaska Highway. We were too anxious to get started as you'll see.

It was a treacherous drive from Dawson Creek. Had intended to get to Ft Nelson but had to abandon the goal due to horrid weather and mountain driving. (April 22)

A Winter Ride to Hope, AK

Jerry and Cheryle James took us for a ride to Hope, AK on Feb, 2. The awesomeness never stopped.
