The Halibut Capital of the Universe

A travel blog entry by andreatravels


At the tip of the Kenai Peninsula is the picturesque town of Homer. The town itself is small and has a population under 5000.

Our hotel was very basic but had a great location, and all our rooms had a view across the Bay to the Kenai …

The weather was off and on rain on today's drive. We are camped in a USFS Camp Ground...Bertha Glacier Creek runs by it, and a couple were gold panning. Well, let's say she was, and ...
