South of Anchorage

We had an awesome day today, after leaving our freebie plush hotel (and last of the trip) in Anchorage, we headed south towards Seward.

On the way in we stopped at the Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. There's a nice easy hike from the visitor center to the edge of the glacier. The glacier was awesome up close, but we're told you can get even closer to the Matanuska Glacier, so we are going to try that tomorrow.

Seward was totally insane with 4th of July festivities. We had planned on trying to camp there but there was no way to even drive into town, let alone find a campsite.

Instead we headed back up the highway and ended up at the Quartz Creek campground which is between Quartz Creek and Kenai Lake. We did some fishing on the lake and I caught a nice rainbow trout.

Right now we're grilling sausages and drinking Alaskan beers.

Happy 4th of July!
