Kenai: Salmon Fishing

Next up for us was fishing on the famous Kenai river. We met our guide at the ridiculous time of four o'clock in the morning and set out for an entire day on the river. Catching wild king salmon is not easy, but our hopes were running high because of the success that others had on several previous days. I had seven "hits" and got four fish to the boat. I couldn't keep three of them due to rules, but the one I could keep was a pretty nice fish. Sadly, not everyone in the boat got a fish.

On the way back to the camper, Marty shouted "Stop!" and jumped out of the truck while it was still moving. He crashed a ways into the woods and took the moose photo you see here. He was so excited to see a moose, almost up close and personal. You can tell you're with an avid hunter when his very next photo is of the poor animal's scat!
