Greetings from Kenai Fjords National Park

The Alaskan national park sites are rather inaccessible, but we found a bit of an exception in Kenai Fjords, and nearby Seward makes for a very hospitable home base. Several tour companies offer boat tours to see a wide variety of marine wildlife and the massive headwall of tidewater glaciers. And with a bit of work, one can hike from the base to the top of the Exit Glacier. Absolutely stunning!

Sincerely,
Eric
