In addition to running, I also really, really love riding horses, skiing, and fishing. The salmon are running so last weekend we drove down to Copper Center and camped and went fishing. It was so much fun.
I caught my first king salmon ever, saw bald eagles, gulls feasting on leftover salmon carcasses, moose tracks, and the scenery was just beautiful. It was so relaxing and peaceful there too. My phone had no signal down there so we were really off the grid. We packed in our own water and food for some dry camping. The mosquitoes were fairly rough and at one point I woke up to a spider crawling next to my face, but I still had such a good time. It was the best time I could have on my last weekend in Alaska.
I already can’t wait to get back next year. I’m already planning a multi-day fishing trip to fish for salmon, go dip netting and go down south to do some deep sea fishing.
