The time has come to break down and pay to spend the night somewhere. Out of water, full waste tanks, and laundry stacked up means we need hookups. Typically the hookup comes with WIFI, however this park and the last have proven to be minimal at best. The signal is slow and progress to update this blog becomes agonizing. Each picture takes literally minutes to load and streaming a movie is out of the question. So that leads us back to where you saw us last. After the mini hike in Kenai Fjords national park we took a day to explore some more.
A quick whistle for the dog and we set off down the river to get into the backwoods. We just barely got started when we were met by a group of people who were extremely excited to see a road. They were shouting " Re-supply!" as they walked past us. You see, there was a truck in the parking lot that said re-supply and had food and other items laid out across it's tables. These backpackers were most likely in the woods for at least a week with only the provisions they carried in. This really makes us look like a bunch of wimps.
About a mile into the trail the woods decided to dense up and the fun hike turned into pushing brush out of our way. No fun, no thanks. We turned around and headed back for the road.
The quick hike got us halfway through the day and we needed something to fill the need. We needed fun, excitement, maybe even some danger. A quick scouting run down the street turned up the perfect place for a kayak rendevous. What would you do? Launch the kayaks by the RV next to a swift moving glacial river with no knowledge of what lays ahead? Of course you would. So would we. Let's roll.
