Last year was a motorcycle ride out west. The year before was backpacking Wyoming, this year we have decided to return to the Kenai Penn one more time........this time however, we are bringing the wives. Acutally renting a motor home this time, rather then the U-Haul and blue tarp.
Here is the schedule so far.
Aug 25 ..arrive in Anchorage and drive to Hope and Resurrection Creek.
Aug 26 ..Spend the day in Hope.
Aug 27 ..Leave Hope and White Water Raft on Six Mile Creek, then hit the Soldotna Area, maybe some fishing on the Russian or Kenia.
Aug 28 ..Fly into the Upper Russian; spend the night at the Upper.
Aug 29 ..Hike to the Middle Cabin and stay the night.
Aug 30 ..Hike out to Civilization and spend the night in the Sterling Soldotna area.
Aug 31 .Drift the Kenai River
Sept 1 ..????
Sept 2 ..????
Sept 3 ..drive to Anchorage, turn in and go home.
Last time we drifted the Kenai we put in at Skilak Lake and took out at Bings landing. We're planning on doing the stretch above Skilak Lake this time, however the Kenai is optional. If there is better river to drift, we're open to suggestions. Just looking to do some fishing, but mostly would like to see some wildlife.
Sept 1st and 2nd are still open. I was thinking maybe drift another river or do a drive to either Homer or Seward........or possibly rent equipment and dig for Razor Clams on the beach.
Thoughts, suggestions, we're thinking Silvers should be running and we've been too early on our previous trips.
