We took an amazing cruise of the Kenai Fjords National Park. It was an all-day trip, and we got to see Orcas, humpback whales bubble-feeding, birds, and this calving glacier.

A great day, we took hundreds of photos.

We got to Seward on June 28, expecting to stay past July 4th. The RV parks get very crowded during the holiday, especially near Anchorage.

We saw lots of cruise ships from the front window of our motorhome.

It was raining in Homer, so we stayed close to home. Imagine our surprise to see a group of sandhill cranes walking through the very wet Elks parking lot!

Taken from our RV location in Homer, Alaska. The Amsterdam was visiting the port, so we got a shot as she left.

The location of Homer is amazing, with glacier-covered mountains across the bay, and famous fishing.

Mountains Around Hatcher Pass Road

We took a drive up Hatcher Pass Road, as far as the Independence Mine area. The views are wonderful. This is a very popular area to visit. We saw lots of hikers and plenty of cars at the trailheads.

This is very much alpine scenery. These mountains are the Talkeetla Range, and from here you can easily see the Chugach range to the south.

Mountains Behind Cantwell, Alaska

We spent a few days in Cantwell. Unfortunately, it rained buckets for most of that time. When the sky cleared up for a little while, we drove around and saw some beautiful mountains to the west of the town.

Denali is lurking somewhere around here, but we haven't been able to see it.

Alaska Railroad Bridge, Denali National Park

We had hiked around the bottom of this trestle, but wanted a wide view. During our park tour, the bus driver suggested a location, and we set up and waited for one of the tourist trains to go through.

We took this type of train in 2008 as part of the land section of our Alaska cruise.

We took a bus tour into the Denali National Park. The tour ran all the way to Eielson where we hoped to see the mountain. Well, the weather was not on our side there.

However, on the tour, we saw a lot of animals, including this brown bear, who was foraging for roots near a river. We also saw Dall Sheep, and caribou.
