    ... the next day we drove 40 miles or so to Hope where we spent two nights. We loved Hope almost as much as Haines! An extremely small little town completely surrounded by the Chugach National Forest. They have one school (K- 12th grade) with 20 kids total- just to give you an idea of how small it is. But it is so scenic and relaxed and friendly and there are lots of trails. We had a great time there and want to go back on our way out of the Kenai if we can. For ...

    ... area that is home to arctic terns - I got too close to a nesting pair and they attacked. Didn't actually get hit, but one flew straight at me and hovered over my head, squawking at me. Arctic terns have a claim to fame in that they migrate round trip between the arctic and Antarctic each year - 22,000 miles in all. We also saw a bunch of bald eagles. The scenery was beautiful all the way down to Seward. Mountains, snow on the peaks, lots of ...

    Day 3

    Today we were blessed with some of Alaska's best, as we had a whole day of beautiful weather. Even the locals stated they hadn't seen the sun since mid August, so we considered ourselves very fortunate to enjoy the USA's biggest state before flying to Honolulu late tonight.

    Since we were in no rush to get anywhere today, we slowly packed up the car, paid our account, and headed towards ...
