We've been to the Kenai, in quaint little Hope, Alaska and now we head back north in order to go further south (and east) to Haines. A great salmon show yesterday, watching and cheering on those huge fish as they would leap with all their might to get up the Russian River Falls--most of them failing. There were no grizzlies to nab them, but Collin, Luna and I did see a black bear mom and 3 adorable and obedient little cubs right off the trail. The theme of the week has been: fishing! While we have yet to cast a line ourselves, the Alaskans and tourists are out in droves right now catching their limits of salmon.
