As promised, Alaska part II. Pictured above is the hike we took through the beautiful forests in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and the fishing village along the Homer Spit. After our shoot in the farm pictured below, we jumped in the car and heading down the spit. Along the road were cute little seafood restaurants, shops and the home to many fishing boats. The seashore filled with beautiful pebbles, long grasses and wild flowers. A view of snow capped mountains and a glacier in the distance.

We were lucky enough to get to see all the fishing boats coming in after a long day out at sea. Huge salmon and halibut were hung and photographed by the tourists who caught them. We watched these young men break down fish faster then I've ever seen before (even the restaurants I've worked in, though I've never met the dude at Le Bernardin who's a known legend). We really enjoyed Homer and I would recommend it if fishing is your thing. I wish we had spent a little more time exploring there but what we did see was really beautiful. A local compared Homer as the San Francisco of Alaska, Soldotna like Wisconsin. I dont know what I think about that but I truly do think its one of the most beautiful places on earth. Alaska in the summer time is truly lovely.

  8. i loved this, cannot wait to jump to the 1st part! i was never in alaska, but i confess that i have a thing for these northern parts of the earth where seasons are pretty different, where mountains covered with snow are a common thing, and lifestyle is entirely different! and of course, i have in my mind that tv show that lasted two seasons about a new york editor who moved to alaska! sigh, i loved that!
