We left Mt. Redoubt Baptist Church about 5:30 am for the drive to Seward and a tour of the Kenai Fjords National Park. The drive was characterized by green, snow-patched mountains and lovely lakes.
This pond is near the junction with the Anchorage highway.
The road southward from the junction toward Seward was wide open and usually with a view of snow-patched mountains.
Nearing Seward, a view of the lake and mountain scenery.
We located our boat for the Kenai Fjords tour, the Fjordland shown in the middle here. From its upper deck we got a view of the harbor and of the mountains ringing Resurrection Bay. To a native it might not be impressive, but the the snow patches on the mountains are beautiful and unique to me.

This is a view of the town of Seward as we were on our way out into Resurrection Bay.
Leaving Seward behind, we got nice views of the mountains ringing the bay.
As we moved out into Resurrection Bay we saw what looked like dark bobbing buoys of some kind. As we approached, we saw the sea otters, apparentlyperfectly relaxed on their backs, floating like corks. With that kind of buoyancy, I'm amazed that they can dive at all.
