Last night we stayed about 23 miles northwest of Seward, Alaska, at Trail River US Forest Service Campground on the shore of Kenai Lake. Beautiful, beautiful. And we only paid $9 to park there. What a deal!
But we only stayed the night and moved on to Seward in the morning. We’re now in Waterfront Park Municipal Campground. $15/night for a spot on the shore of Resurrection Bay.
We were able to just drive in straight so our front view is that of the bay. We can watch all the fishing and tour boats come and go.
It seems like the clouds and fog have been following us around for the last week or so. After we got settled in we went to town exploring. Seward population is only about 2,600 but they have a lot going on. Tourism is a big industry here and is the reason we are here, of course. We have tickets for a 9-hour cruise tomorrow that should be awesome. We’ll see some glaciers up close, hopefully see some whales, and more. Looking forward to that.
Later in the day we drove out to Exit Glacier where we hiked the 1-mile-long Glacier View Trail to get an up-close look. We got our cardio workout doing that. Exit Glacier is 2.4 miles long and descends some 3,500 feet from the Harding Icefield.
