Alaska Travel Stories


by Kathleen Fackler

After traveling a day from the east coast we landed in Anchorage with no preconceived notions of what type of adventure lie ahead. We were greeted in the morning by "Luke" at our hotel in Anchorage and started are 7 day adventure that included Bear Camp were I had the adrenaline rush of my life viewing grizzlies on the beach. My family members were in amazement again when we returned to the lodge right next to the beautiful blue Kenai River where the sockeye were just boiling and the King Salmon looked fake jumping out of the water. We had a week of adventures from hiking, drifting the Kenai, lunch at two of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen, Bear Camp and fishing the Kasilof River in addition to seeing whales and sea life on the Kenai Fjords trip. The wildlife that we seen in those seven days again went way beyond my wildest dreams and we loved being apart of nature in the adventure to view them.
