We are presently camped at Craters of the Moon National Monument, 20 miles south of Arco, Idaho on Hwy.93 . The park really lives up to it's name, with the camp sites cut into boulders of lave rock. Every afternoon and evening the rangers offer guided walks throughout the park. Yesterday we went in the caves of lave tubes. Pretty cool!
Now, Back to our Alaska Adventure...
The last blog post had us entering the Kenai Peninsula to get prepared for family members coming into the Anchorage Airport on Aug. 3.
David's sister, Judy, reserved a 3-bedroom cabin for all of us at Alaska Canoe and Campground in Sterling, AK. On the main floor, Judy had a room and David and I had the other room, while Joe and Leib shared the loft. The city of Sterling has a great central location for exploring the east and west coasts of the Kenai Peninsula and is on the part of the Sterling Highway with the Kenai and Russian Rivers running along side. People come from all over the world to fish these rivers. Note the freezer provided to store your fish until it's time to have it shipped home. We also saw that lots of people who drove to Alaska bought a smoker and processed it to take home.
