Homer, Alaska

July 13, 2022

Swans, most likely trumpeter, because I can’t see any yellow near their eyes. But they are pretty far away.

We toured the Kenai Peninsula from Seward to Soldotna and Homer for a day. The route is visible on the map below and is known as the Sterling Highway.

The views to the west across Cook Inlet to the Chigmit Mountains in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve are striking. Beautiful and seemingly totally uninhabited.

The flowers everywhere, wild and in containers and gardens, are lush due to the 20+ hours of sunlight.

Looking south over Homer to the Kenai Mountains on the most southern part of the Kenai Peninsula.

The Town of Homer was anything but uninhabited; better compared to OOB or Ocean City. Homer Spit is a 4.5 mile bar of gravel. After the 1964 earthquake it sank more than 4 feet, so must be narrower, but it is a major port and tourist attraction.

Just a bit of the huge harbor
