We left Homer bound for Denali after a short stop in Anchorage. We had gone a charter fishing trip and caught some halibut. At the Anchorage airport there is a freezer locker where you can store your fish, for a fee.

We stopped a few times to take in the sights. At once place, numerous people were dip netting for hooligan or smelt. We’d never seen that before. Most of the people were waiting for the tide to turn and were spread out on the rocks anticipating that the fish would soon arrive. We also stopped at Tern Lake and Potter Marsh where we saw courting Mew Gulls and Arctic Terns. Arctic Terns migrate between Antarctica and the Arctic, a distance of about 12,000 miles, twice a year!
