Sunday, August 19 (Alaska Trip Day #10)

After some of our group headed back home, David and I drove through the Kenai Moutains and headed down to Seward. Along the way, we stopped along the Kenai River and took in the sights--Fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium) along the river.

Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) desperately trying to make their way upstream to spawn.

The harbor in Seward, Alaska. The town is named after William Seward, the Secretary of State under Abraham Lincoln, who purchased Alaska in 1867.

A glimpse at a Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), fishing in a small cove in the Bay of Alaska.
