Day 37 – Kenai Fjords National Park

August 10, 2017

On my itinerary, I have myself stopping of in Anchorage for a half day, just enough to get a shower and a hot meal, before moving on. After spending nearly three days in a hotel, I finally got moving again this morning. Seriously, I should have taken two months off just for a rigorous training regimen before taking these two months of for the trip.

During my convalescence, I was looking over a map of Alaska and noticed two national parks I somehow had never heard of, Kenai Fords National Park and Wrangell–St. Elias National Park.

From the name and the five minutes of research I did, it seemed that the proper way to experience Kenai Fjords is by tour boat or kayak, but that wasn’t something I wanted to sink my teeth into. Still, there’s a nature center with a few hiking trails a 2½ hour drive from Anchorage, so I thought it was worth a day trip before heading out and onward.
