Alaska–Day 70

Our drive today to Seward was beautiful.  But first, if you catch or harvest a whole lot of salmon, what do you do with it?  Freeze it, of course.  But you can also can it.  I saw these two pressure canners in a camp site this morning.


Our 100-mile drive took us through mountains and along rivers and lakes.  This is Tern Lake.

When you are inching your way through a construction zone, it isn’t comforting to see a tractor above you, like this.


This is what the tractor was moving, either up or down.  Glad none of it hit us.


We like this sign on the main street in downtown Seward.


We arranged an all-day cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park for Friday, using our buy one-get one free Toursaver book.  The park has glaciers, wildlife and mountains.  It should be fun.

Tonight, I prepared some of the salmon we were given as we left Scenic View.  I used a recipe in a book of salmon recipes that I bought the last time we were in Alaska.  The meal, while good, helped us decide we didn’t want to spend $200 to $300 for a fishing charter.  We are here to enjoy Alaska and Canada, see wildlife and scenery.  We don’t enjoy fish enough to go fishing and have all that fish to eat.
