The Cook Inlet offers some of the best views in the world. besides the scenery, wildlife viewing opportunities are frequent. We saw whales, bald eagles, moose, and salmon.

Alaska has been a pure delight. This inlet has beauty in a sparse, bleak environment. It may be cold but it is serene and as the Alaskans say - " The last wilderness area"

Always a pretty place to go. Walk, sit or meditate. No matter the weather it's just one of the many interesting and amazing area of Alaska to see and be a part of. See it before bore tide and after, it's incredible.

Beautiful drive when going to Kenai Peninsula. Several places to stop on the road to take pictures. Be aware the locals drive very fast and pass you in areas that are not always safe.
