The Alaskan Fishing Experience

Hundreds of people “dipnetting” in the background

 

One of the truly Alaskan experiences is salmon “dipnetting”. Every year thousands of Alaskan residents dip their fishing nets at the mouth of the Kenai river and get massive quantities of salmon. The season only lasts ~3 weeks and it is a spectacle.

Wearing chest waders, people will stand in the cold water for hours holding heavy nets as the tide raises.

They are everywhere!

Do not miss all the tents on the shore!

 

Four wheelers are needed to travel in the beach, thousands of tents and quads pop up, turning the beach into the second largest city in Alaska!

This year the Snowieners got to experience it all!

Smile, it’s Friday!

BOL!

BOL!

This week’s adventure took place in Hatcher’s Pass, Alaska. I will tell you all about it in my next posting. Have a great weekend.

Hiking at Eklutna Lake

Last weekend we visited Eklutna Lake. It is a short drive from Anchorage. The weather was perfect, so a lot of people were hiking, biking, kayaking and even swimming!

You cannot beat that view, especially in a clear sunny day.

You can’t fully enjoy the sight when you are so low to the ground, so I got a little help and I got to see what everyone was talking about!

We’ll need to come back some other day and hike the trail to Thunderbird Waterfalls.
