Williwaw USFS CG near Whittier to Soldotna, 104 miles, July 23, 2010


We hated to leave this beautiful treed site at the Williwaw USFS but it was time to move on down the road towards Homer.  We drove back to the Seward Hwy, then down the Sterling Hwy to Soldotna.

Many of the RV parks in Soldotna are full, but we did find space at the Best Western King Salmon RV Park, full hookups, 50 amp for $37/night, and a clear view of the southern sky so our internet satellite connected quickly.  Even our batwing TV antenna brings in several stations very well.


We have been told that areas like this with dead spruce trees are here because of the 1964 earthquake. The land sunk in this area, the roots are now in or near the sea level (saltwater).


This is the  only place, so far, where the steep green mountains with snow are similar to Switzerland.  Quite beautiful!


Loved this turquoise color of the Kenai River.


Please excuse the black bugs, but wanted you all to see the fact we are seeing more and more folks, we are heading west to Soldotna.


As you can see on the above photo, it is bug removal time, again!  I sure do like our new collapsible ladder.
