Raven Kiss

Raven Kiss

It’s usually quite difficult to spy on COMMON RAVENS, much less get photos. They are wary and private, and do not tolerate paparazzi spying on their personal lives. By happy circumstance, while studying the raucous gulls at the NE Beach fish cleaning station, I found a family of oblivious RAVENS parading along the beach. The three youngsters looked disheveled, their […]

Moose Pass welcomes Summer with their annual Summer Solstice Festival

Photos contributed by Jason Aigeldinger – What started out as a day with a heavy downpour,  residents and affiliates of the Moose Pass Sportsmen’s Club continued on with their annual Moose Pass Summer Solstice Festival in full spirits. But as happy festival-goers filed in, the gray skies lifted and the mountain tops exposed their white peaks of fresh snow. The festivities […]

Smoky haze over Seward

Smoke from the Funny River wildfire near Soldotna reached Seward today, changing our beautiful blue sky to a gray haze. The fire has grown to over 20,000 acres, sending smoke to Anchorage, Homer and Seward. The whole Kenai Peninsula is dry and fire danger is high. More information and a map can be found online at <http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/3878/> Submitted by Carol Griswold […]

Raven Entertainment

For the past week, I have watched RAVENS flying overhead, carrying small sticks quite a distance to a hidden nest site. I wondered where they got all those sticks, and why, with dead sticks available on every tree, they had to fly at all. This afternoon at the beach, I received one answer as I watched a pair of glossy […]

Skiing the scenery: Mount Alice

By Chad Harder for Seward City News – SEWARD, Alaska – Anyone moving to Seward should catch on pretty quick that the best way through our long dark winter is to make the most of it. Skiing, dogsledding, skating, hiking, snowmachining, whatever, the key to avoiding cabin fever is to head outside, get some weather on your face and challenge […]

Morning tea on Marathon

Morning tea on Marathon

Finally, a break in the mid 40′s , rainy, cloudy, Seward winter gloom. The night before the Superbowl was here and tomorrow held the promise of  not just football, junk food, and beer, but also a cool sunny day on the Kenai Peninsula. Oh the possibilities! After weighting all the options, I decided to take a peek up the jeep […]

Tonsina Point

Tonsina Point

Because of the unseasonably warm weather, it’s relatively easy to hike out along an old logging trail from Lowell Point’s recreation area to Tonsina Point, and see beautiful scenes like these. It’s about three miles round-trip, with some climbing, a little ice and  rock navigation, and a variety of switchbacks. Tonsina Point view, photo taken Sunday Feb 2nd, 2014 by […]

Mt Marathon training starts early

Mt Marathon training starts early

On a beautiful, clear, calm  afternoon, a solitary runner powered his way up the Mt Marathon race trail to the top of the world. The down trail, though partially filled with snow, was too icy so the runner quickly completed his descent down to the Bowl, Bench Trail and home. What a great run! Carol Griswold

Magic at Twilight

Magic at Twilight

SEWARD, Alaska – It wasn’t that late, but the sun does not linger in November. I shot out to Lowell Point beach at 4 pm just in time to watch the clouds in the western sky transition from white to an ever-deepening pink, and the bay blush in concert. As twilight stole in, a GREAT BLUE HERON winged majestically from […]

What are they doing??? It’s another very unusual bird. This one was spotted on Monday by Jen Linkhart. She had the presence of mind to grab her camera and take […]
