Seward to Kenai River CG and Russian Falls CG

We left Seward for the Kenai River Campground. Beautiful morning out my window in Seward.

Tern Lake had these gulls loafing around.

We did get to see Scoters, Bald Eagles and fishermen down at the river. In the campground we saw White-winged Crossbills. Both the adult and hatch year birds were feeding in a cottonwood tree. We also observed Mountain Goats across the road and way up on the mountain eating. There were 3 of them. Couldn’t get a pic it was way too far. Here is the river. Next are the Scoters and gulls on the river.

The ladies headed back to the rig from the river. Mountain goats on the mountain there in the background.
We drove to Russian River campground and while Liz, Jennifer and Ashley hiked up to the Falls, I birded down below and took photos of the flowers and neat things. We drove through the campground and decided it would be a neat place to stay. Lots of places available and some were quite nice.

Great flowers out here.
This plant has a drop of water in the center of it's leaves.

Was not a great campground, but it did have good water and power. A dump that was okay and a washing machine that was broken. Probably skip on that one in the future.

  1. You got some really great plant and flower shots along with all the birds. Those gulls look so white and beautiful.
