Gorgeous winter day!

Gorgeous winter day!

Blue-black clouds rolled in from the Gulf of Alaska all day in a series of squalls, delivering fat, swirling snowflakes. An unidentified skier took advantage of the accumulated snow to enjoy a beautiful ski along the bay on the waterfront path. Happy Winter! (click on photo to enlarge) Carol

My family enjoyed watching Seward’s first sea lion grow up from a frisky 5 year old to a massive, magnificent adult. Countless visitors enjoyed his antics and grace, awed by his presence gliding past the habitat viewing window. Scientists gained valuable information about his […]

Only a couple of people in the entire campground had any idea this was happening overhead last night at 2:00 a.m.  […]

Blackhawk helicopters refuel at Seward for Cooper Landing fires

Today at 1 pm, two massive, fire-fighting Blackhawk helicopters thundered down the Resurrection River valley from Cooper Landing to the Seward Airport. Large, orange, expandable water buckets dangled on long cables. Airport fuel manager Denny Hamilton said Seward was a better choice than Soldotna due to the smoke from all the fires.

Tuesday Treat

Tuesday Treat

What a brilliant, blue sky day today and what a contrast to yesterday’s storm! The early morning fog soon burned off, and the fresh snow on the mountains sparkled. Hoards of kittiwakes surged after herring in the calm bay, like a feathered blizzard, and bald eagles grabbed fistfuls of the silvery fish. This day was a fabulous St Patty’s Day treat! […]
