July 28, 2009 – Travel to Captain Cook

We left Homer this morning in the rain and took a slow drive up SR-1 on the western side of the Kenai Peninsula.  We made a stop at Fred Meyers in Soldotna for fuel and groceries and ran into Peggy and Larry (who we met in Ninilchik).  It was so good to see them and hopefully we will see them again in Arizona this winter.

We continued our journey up the Kenai Spur Road and stopped at the end of the road at the Captain Cook State Park.   If you look at a map, follow the road north of Kenai.  When the road stops, there we are!

I just love this place!!  We are in lush vegetation and sit on a bluff overlooking the Cook Inlet with a view (if it clears) of Mt. Redoubt and Mt. Spur. The rain, however, continued so no pictures – :- ((.   Tomorrow, I promise!

Miles Traveled:  117 miles

Routes Traveled:

AK: SR-1 (Sterling Highway); SR-490 (Kenai Spur Highway)
