8/31 Arrive Kenai. took city tour of 1/2 hour. Walked over to the Russian Orthodox Church. Than we rode around and visited the museum and wildife center. We had a pizza dinner at the pavilion.
9/1 Today is the last day of our caravan tour. I biked down ...
Moose are not only elusive, they are so skittish! IF you happen to see one...and if you want to capture it...in pictures, you must be extremely quiet...and fast on the brakes and the trigger (camera trigger, of course)!
I thought the "Barely Legal" sign was just plain silliness until I researched how difficult it really is to determine if a moose is legal to shoot.
The hunters' mantra, "Any doubt, don't shoot."
... as it left its calling card while we were on the platform watching the fish. A HUGE berry-filled pile of scat was on the trail, and it was NOT on the trail on the walk to the platform.
Back at the ranch, it started pouring with gale force winds. Nevertheless, three bald eagles began dive bombing the beach for treats! Very exciting, but too quick to capture!
... huge dip nets to catch salmon for about 3 weeks. Not at all sporting, it just puts food on the table. Then it was off to see Holy Assumption of the Virgin Mary Russian Orthodox Church. There are no pews because every one stands during the service. The church was built for $400 during the early 1800's. We went to the visitor center to be sure we saw all the important things in Kenai and we were getting hungry so what to our gazing eyes did appear ...
... fishermen lined up every few feet for miles along the river. Art was a little hesitant at first, not wanting to push someone out of his place but he finally eased his way in and started fishing.
He just got into the middle of the Russian, when a black bear and 2 cubs showed up behind him. I called "bear" and all the fishermen quickly ...
