We’ve Got a Keen Eye for the Kenai Peninsula

Kenai Mountains above Tarn Lake

The Kenai Peninsula is a large peninsula jutting 150 miles into the Pacific Ocean off the southern coast of Alaska just a short drive from Anchorage.  It’s often referred to as “Alaska’s Playground” because it offers world-class salmon and halibut fishing, one of the longest wilderness canoe routes in the United States, hundreds of miles of hiking trails, hundreds of lakes, hundreds of glaciers, snow-capped mountains, the largest ice field in the country, the second-largest national forest in the country, a national park, national wildlife refuge, and wildlife galore including moose, bears, eagles, sheep and goats.  We spent two weeks on the Kenai Peninsula (pronounced KEE-nigh) and really enjoyed our stay.  Please check out our photos from this very special place:
