The wildfires are causing some great sunsets. This sunset is from Deep Creek, looking across Cook Inlet. Mt Redoubt is over there somewhere! The fishing in the creek was fun (no catching) and we saw an Eagle sitting on the nest. We left Deep Creek without talking to Don’s cousin who is working on the tractors that launch boats on the beach – our timing was bad 😦
I think we set a record, yesterday, on the shortest driving day: 7 miles! We are on the Kasilof, where the Crooked River comes in. The Kasilof is the pretty, light, green color that comes from the glacial silt. As we watched the fishing, last night, two kings were caught out of 2 different drift boats. There were plenty of fishermen on the bank but I wouldn’t call it “combat” fishing. There was plenty of room between them. They use an odd style of casting and it seems like a lot of snagging goes on (intentional?). We paid $31.50 for trees, firepit, showers (12 minutes!) and full hookups.
