Kenai Canoe Trails

I am sure most of you are aware of the northern boundary water canoe trails up on the Minnesota-Canada border.  What you may not be aware of is that Alaska has the second largest canoe trail system down on the Kenai Peninsula.  Daniel Quick has put together the first (and only) comprehensive book on the trail system and it is a winner.  In this day and age of 149 character limit tweets and authors who throw something against the wall and hope nobody cares whether it sticks, Daniel has gone through a tremendous amount of effort to provide his readers with genuine research that is useful and can be trusted.  This book comes from years of personal time on this system and a ton of time with Fish & Game, rangers, other users and the library.  (What a concept).  If you want to float this system this book is a MUST have.  If you want to go and camp within this system, this book is a MUST have.  You can get it at Amazon of course or head straight on over to http://www.northlite.biz/Canoe/

Aerial Combatants


The Big Kahuna is the guy in the back snipping at the wing of the foreground Swan.  He came into the lake that is off to the right, from the lake that is off to the left, and ran off 4 other swans.  He has a mate on eggs on the lake off to the left but I guess he has a big territory.

The arctic evening have longs hours of beautiful golden light and this lady is soaking up some rays.  The White Fronted Goose is a long time favorite of mine and is ubiquitous on the north slope.

Snow Geese Chicks

The Snow Geese Junior Hockey team.  They had a Hockey mom getting after them a little for what sounded like a lack of effort.  You can’t blame her too much.  Look at them;  they look like they don’t have a care in the world.
