... waters of the inlet. Traffic is heavy as the summer exodus of Alaskans is in full swing - 58 799 cars in one day was a previous record – and we are reluctant to pull over to sight-see too often as the traffic flow seems endless. Armadas of enormous shiny new Winnebagos indicate that many travellers are visitors-- all travelling way too slow for the locals. Alaskan residents have special privileges to catch salmon in numbers and ways not afforded ...
