A perfectly-timed weather window yielded seven satisfying days in a row on the Kenai last week. Sunny, cold, and mostly stable. Perfect. The camera came out for a few of those days and offers a taste of the place. Enjoy.

Touring for its own sake would be worth it. Stunning.

One memorable moment was flushing two rock ptarmigan on a big heel turn; white wings against blue sky. Another here on the uptrack.

Looks like you guys hit the weather window perfect. From what i gather Alaska is a pretty fickle place as far as the weather is concerned. How many days did you guys get out? The terrain looks epic..

Zude, yes, it can be fickle. We got lucky with weather, visibility and snow conditions. We toured seven days in a row.
