It was a beautiful drive from Anchorage to Kenai. During the 158 mile trip we went from being at sea level to high in the mountains with glaciers. It's funny to see a mountain tree line at 2,300 feet. The views were simply spectacular all day. I was snapping pictures left and right. We were surprised we did not see any wildlife, but the scenery made up for it. To show Alaskans have good taste we traveled behind a Bronco fan driving an F150 Ford truck. After we got settled into camp we headed up to a small town called Nisiki to check on our fishing charter trip for tomorrow. On the way we spotted a moose, in of all places, beside the parking lot of the local hardware store. She just stood their as if to say, "Get it over with you darn tourists, I am eating my snack". There is a correction from an earlier post - The Forget-me-Not is the state flower of Alaska not the Fireweed.
