Yesterday we took a water taxi from Homer to Kachemak Bay State Park and hiked to Grewingk Glacier. It was a great boat ride, we saw a sea otter, a puffin and a harbor seal on the way. The hike was relatively flat and the glacier was spectacular! There were a bunch of people there, some hiked with their inflatable kayaks and kayaked between the glacier fragments. We heard the glacier calve a couple of times, but visibility was relatively poor because of the wildfire smoke. Off to catch some Halibut at 5:30 tomorrow morning!!
Our water taxi driving away after dropping us off on the beach. We are scheduled to get picked up 5 hours later at a different place….we hope!
Pica, our guide dog on the boat!
The trail to the glacier lake.
We made it!
You can see the glacier coming into the lake on the right side of this picture. Heavy smoke just above.
A good view of the glacier, albeit smoky!
Waiting for the water taxi to pick us up after our hike.
