For those with a naturalist streak, few places on earth compare with the wonders of Southwest Alaska. Brown bears amble along the hills and plains, and more than 240 bird species inhabit Alaska’s Southwest region. The region’s terrain ranges from a landscape of volcanoes in Katmai National Park created by the 1912 eruption of the Novarupta volcano, to the windswept Aleutian Islands that make a 1,000-mile sweep toward Asia.

Our third Trip to Alaska. Had spent a tour in Alaska1961-1966 and 1970-1975 at Elmendorf AFB in the Air force. Now one of our son's is stationed at Elmendorf AFB, we have 5 kids of which 3 where born in Alaska.. We spent the whole summer with him and his family from June through August 2006

We renewed our minds on how beautiful the State of Alaska is, Took a 25 day motor home trip around the state visiting as much as possible showing our son the places he had been to as a little boy.

Fishing too a lot of our time but well worth it. The wild life is still every where and the Fishing is even better than I remember  from my USAF tours in Alaska.

We visited Denali for 3days we took tram up to top of  Mt Alyeska, we visted Homer, we fished for halibit in Cook inlet, we fished the famous Russian River for Reds.We spent time at Seward fishing out in the bay for the fun catching silvers.

The Russian river, known for its fishing is now a place to see plenty of bears both black and brown bears.

Seen lots of eagles, whales, moose, and other wildlife through out the places we visited.

All ready planning our next trip to Alaska!
