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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]
