A big experience of this year was Rod and Brenda's trip to Kenai, Alaska to continue work on the Mt. Redoubt Baptist Church with the Georgia Tech BSU alumni group. Rod had come with Jeff last year for the start of the Mt. Redoubt project.

This year, Brenda and Rod and Max and Anita Hardie made a trip to Denali Park before the start of the construction. On August 11 we traveled on a yellow schoolbus through Denali Park with a notable stop at Polychrome Pass. We got to see grizzlies, ptarmigan, caribou and finally got a view of the mountain Denali . We continued to the gold mining camp at Kantishna and got good views on the return trip. Of note were the glacial rivers, which we called "braided rivers".

From Denali Park we went to Fairbanks and took a tour on the riverboat Discovery. Then we headed to Big Delta and down the Richardson Highway, with view of fabulous mountain scenery. We paralleled the Alaska Pipeline for some distance. We traveled through the Matanuska Valley to Anchorage and visited the Portage Glacier on the way to the Kenai Peninsula.

After the construction, we traveled to Seward for a tour of the Kenai Fjords National Park on August 28. This included visits to Bear Glacier, Cheval Island and Holgate Glacier and views of whales, puffins and sea lions.

We spent the night in Seward and on August 29 we headed north, stopping briefly at Ptarmigan Creek to see a salmon run. We revisited the Portage Glacier and then put the car on a flatbed traincar to Whittier where we caught the car ferry to Valdez. We visited the Columbia Glacier on the way to Valdez.

From Valdez we drove to Chistochina on the Glenn Highway on August 30 and then returned down the Matanuska Valley through Palmer to Anchorage. We had a farewell dinner there with a number of the construction team before parting company.
