While in Anchorage, we took a side trip down to the Kenai Peninsula. It was a beautiful drive. The swans seemed to be floating in every puddle. Both trumpeter and tundra swans were migrating through, and their numbers were in the hundreds.
Autumn is a perfect time to visit the Kenai. Very little tourist action is going on this time of year, with absolutely no combat fishing. Although, that also means that almost nothing was open.
