Alaska...Too much to do, too little time. Denali State Park to Turnagin Arm and Soldatna.

After leaving the Denali area we headed to Anchorage for an overnight at Cabelao's.  Great RV parking there.  Gary had to have his truck serviced so we celebrated at a sushi restaurant.  Yum.  Then we headed to Portage which is south of Anchorage on the Seward highway.  We stopped for a train ride up to Spencer Glacier.  What a cool trip.  After a boondocking overnight at Turnagin Rest Area, we headed for Soldatna on the Kenai Peninsula.  Nice trip through a mountainous area and we caught a glimpse of Alaskans who were netting salmon in the Russian River.

Spencer Glacier near Portage.  Part of Chugach National Forest.
This is Gary, me and Floy boarding the train.  They served wine and beer on the way back.  Believe it or not, I had water.
Spencer Glacier.  Amazing.
This bridge was completed in Chugach NF within the past couple of years.  Longest, wooden, single-span bridge in the world.
Waiting for the return ride.
Heading south from Portage on Seward Highway we finally saw our first bit of brackish water.  This is a view of Turnagin Arm shortly before we turned onto the Sterling Highway heading to Soldatna and Kenai.
