We’re slowly making our way to Homer, Alaska. We’ll get there eventually. Tonight we are in Soldotna, and spent the day looking around here and the nearby town of Kenai. Moose and caribou are supposed to be around, but not that we could see.
Behind the Kenai Visitor Center is a fishwalk..a boardwalk for fishing. We watched as locals and tourists tried their luck. The locals were pulling them in one after another but the tourists weren’t having any luck.
Some of Kenai’s oldest buildings are Russian Orthodox-related. The Holy Assumption of the Virgin Mary Orthodox Church, built in 1895 still stands.
A scenic overlook in Kenai overlooks the Kenai River. Purple Fireweed is growing everywhere, it’s in all the road ditches and open fields. It’s really pretty.
Back in Soldotna we walked the boardwalk at a city park. Lots of people were out salmon fishing.
Then we drove around the country, found some wildlife viewing areas, but no wildlife other than some birds.
