A visit from my sister

So, I've been super delayed in posting, so you'll have to forgive me for being out and about and too busy at work!!!

My sister, Erin, was in town for a week at the end of July . . . we killed silvers on a charter in Seward, hung out in Cooper Landing, and spent a day in good old Girdwood . . . it was actually pretty fun!

Hiking above Kenai Lake

Hanging by the lake - roadside "nature mcnugget" :-)

One of many bike trails in Cooper Landing takes you to Russian River Falls where you can watch the sundry of the famous Russian River reds come upstream . . . I'm not a huge fishing/fish fan, but you've got to admit it's pretty impressive to watch these creatures swim upstream. The trail actually goes for 12 miles of singletrack, but the falls are only 3 miles from the trailhead.

The falls We also had the chance to float the Kenai River and fish for trout and dolly varden . . . floating the Kenai is a super great experience, especially on the upper river where there's no developments and no motors! Other people chose the more combat style red fishing . . . classic Kenai :-)

Overall, we had a great trip, and it was fun to show Erin around a small piece of Alaska!
