I woke up and decided to have a cup of coffee on the patio.  My cabin was right on the Nenana River.  As I sat enjoying my coffee and the view, I couldn’t help but notice a light rain, known around here as mist that was causing everything around me to become wet.  I decided to dress warm and dry, rain gear again.

As I started out from the Denali River cabins, I noticed one or two breaks in the sky.  Beautiful blue sky’s lit the horizon as white puffy clouds floated across them.  Today was a fantastic day for shooting.  I stopped every chance I got.  Everything got used today, cameras, lenses, filters, flash.  Every time I turned a corner or hit another straight away, I saw another shot waiting to happen.

I got a short break from shooting as I passed through Anchorage.  As soon as I was south of Anchorage the shooting started again.  This was truly beautiful country and I wanted to make sure I captured as much of it as possible.  As I crossed the Kenai Peninsula I was getting on and off the bike so often my legs were actually getting sore.

I finally pulled into Seward Bay around 4:00pm.  I checked into my room at the Breeze Inn and then walked over to the lounge for dinner and drinks.  I had a great time hanging with the locals until about 11:45pm and then decided it was time to get some sleep.  It was more exploring and shooting tomorrow and then back up to Anchorage and the Millennium Hotel.
