    Seward, Alaska

    August 9, 2015 in the United States

    Wir hoffen, Ihr genießt den Jahrhundertsommer in Mitteleuropa oder lasst es euch sonst irgendwo auf der Welt gut gehen. Wir haben hier in Alaska auch außergewöhnlich schönes Wetter – Tagestemperaturen um 25 °C sind keine Seltenheit.

    Lange haben wir kein Update mehr online gestellt – selten hatten wir hier eine befriedigende Internetverbindung. Jetzt gibt es aber gleich mehrere neue Einträge und Bilder. Viel Spaß beim Stöbern …

    Übrigens: unseren aktuellen Standort findet ihr immer bis auf wenige Meter genau unter https://share.delorme.com/hinterdemhorizont. Die Satellitendarstellung der Karten kann man so nah heranzoomen, dass man sogar Reifenspuren im Gras erkennen kann!

    Seward & Alaska

    July 30, 2016 in the United States

    We hit the Alaska border on Thursday.

    It was a day of exhausting driving from Whitehorse, but worth it. The roads from Whitehorse to the Alaska border were likely the worst in the world- or close. Though they were really bad, the Yukon has some stunning views including Canada's tallest Mountain, Mt. logan.

    Leaving Whitehorse a local radio had been tagged in Jest's tweets about the trip, so they mentioned us on air and talked about our trip. They also invited locals to call in and give us tbe best recommendations in the area- it was a pretty cool way to start the day.

    We filled gas at the most Western Canadian town at 1.40/Litre. We regret that after as 30 minutes into the US has was about .62c/Litre

    We hit the Aaska border and went straight for Anchorage. It was a long drive and at first not to many sites or scenes, but closer to Anchorage the massive mountains and beautiful scenery started to shine. The views rivalled anything we have ever seen from Alberta, BC & the Yukon, was truly amazing.

    We hunkered down in Anchorage for the night in a camp site on a river bank- was a nice site but very cold. We would imagine we continue to have the +5-7° weather.

    The next day we headed down to a great little ocean edge town called Seward. Sadly so did 3 cruise ships and it was the busiest day Seward has had in 30 some years. We are the kind of travellers that don't really like tourists! (We know how that sounds.)

    Seward is a charming town with a few local breweries, great restaurants and a massive fishing industry. We went sea kayaking here and saw some incredible scenes. A large sea otter was taking a sun bath on the ocean, we saw a dozen or so bald eagles, we also saw a salmon spawning river. We learned a lot about the life of a salmon that day, salmon lay their eggs in the same river they were born and then they die. Quite the site- a river full of rotting salmon. The birds would pick their eyes out and start to eat their flesh while they were still alive. I don't know about you, but I think I would rather be caught and killed instantly. But they aren't fulfilled in their lives until they can lay their eggs for the next generation.

    We found our way to a very cool brewery in Seward where we enjoyed a pint of local craft before heading back to Anchorage.

    That night in Anchorage we found a very cool restaurant called The Bridge which was a building built over a river. The bridge was an amazing experience, it's only open 3 months a year to keep all ingredients used local and sustainable. Well we ate on the patio we could watch the local fisherman catching their Alaskan Salmon. They catch everything locally and get all their vegetables from the very same valley. The food, server, atmosphere and drinks were top notch and we highly recommend this stop to anyone.

    Anchorage itself isn't a thrilling city, but there was a lot of cool shops and restaurants in the downtown core and a lot of ourdoor acrivities you can do in the area, not to mention seaonal whale watching.

    To Seward via Kenai Peninsula

    August 27, 2017 in the United States

    Once again following Turnaround Arm to the end of the valley, we enter new territory as we cross the Kenai Peninsula. The road rises to 1,200 feet over Turnagain Pass.

    We travel through avalanche country (in the winter) where black snow runs are on the left and motorised snow sports are on the right of the highway. We go through Moose Pass and along Lake Kenai as the road flattens out toward the coast.

    Seward sits at the top of Resurrection Bay.

    Seward Embarkation

    August 27, 2017 in the United States

    The Seward departure point for the ship is adjacent to the rail depot where the Wilderness Express is waiting.

    Seward is largely a fishing port and entry point to Alaska from the sea. Set in a fjord, the waterway is surrounded by rugged high mountains that come down to the sea.

    Boarding is simple and uncomplicated. Finding our way around is more so. We depart around 8:15 pm and the weather ahead doesn't look great. The pilot boat pushes us out then we are on our way.Read more

    A walk in the woods

    May 27 in the United States

    Walked the centennial trail and connectors in kenai national wildlife Refuge this morning, a blue bird day again, The trail always seems to go up hill, people always ask what’s in my pack, my gun, extra clothes in dry bag, food, fire starter, water filter, hatchet, mosquito net, and my chair and bible , people can’t believe I carry a chair up hill both ways but Alaska is a swamp and if u would like to rest or read, u stand or sit on wet ground, I’m not a fan of either of those . Happy memorial weekend to all.Read more

    Thursday May 10 excellent night

    May 10 in the United States

    Was a nice night awoke to a crisp and refreshing 38 degrees, it is so quiet , I have to wind the clock or keep the fire crackling to sleep, I will adjust . The first pic is we’re a young bull moose cleaned his antlers in the fall we will hope he made it thru the winter, I found tracks this morning were 2 had been thru the yard in the night. Sunset at 10 and rose at 6. I keep lifting sink faucet thinking something will come out but air, it’s the long way on everything here, if u want water u must go and get it from the spring that flows year round up in town. The arctic entry also works as a refrigerator, drove to soldotna was a nice day that’s a picture looking across to west side . Tomorrow I fish the Kasilof river for king salmon , it’s early so I expect no luck but it will b fun I hope it’s like riding a bike and the skills I used to have return quickly and fish will b for dinner. Went out looking for moose and found 9 tonight a cow and two of last years calves I was able to get pictures of .Read more
