Anchor Point, Alaska
- bald eagles, and more....
June 26, 2009
|Anchor Point, "North America's Most Westerly Highway Point" and home of the world famous Anchor River, is just 200 miles south of Anchorage, an hour drive from the world famous Kenai River, and twenty minutes from the grandeur of Kachemak Bay.
|Below: The tide was so low that boats and their occupants had to be taken from the parking lot to the water by tractors. One boat broke down and had to be towed in. Many local people came to watch so they must have heard it on the news.
|The view across Cook Inlet from Anchor Point included four volcanoes, Mt. Spurr, Mt. Redoubt, Mt. Iliamna, and Mt. St. Augustine, all members of the Pacific Ring of Fire. On a clear day, Cape Douglas can also be seen from the beaches and bluffs in this community. What an interesting place!
|Below: Anchor Point had a large bald eagle population and the two RV Gypsies watched the Bald Eagles gliding with the air currents and feeding along the river and beach. The two RV Gypsies spent hours photographing the bald eagles, golden eagles, and other birds and hope you will enjoy the few photos they posted here.
Below: Beehive RV Park and "Beatrice" the Bumble Bee RV. The two RV Gypsies did not use this campground, nor eat at the diner, but just photographed these places as they drove past them. But the two RV Gypsies just might get this way again on another trip.
Below: The two RV Gypsies also thought his house was interesting enough to photograph as they drove past it.
|Almost every city that the two RV Gypsies visited in Alaska had a "visit us again soon" sign or a "thank you for visiting" sign.
