Lupine, dominating the Southern Kenai Peninsula landscape.

I finally stopped and looked inside this really old building in Cooper Landing -- former general store and post office, now museum -- after several decades of curiosity.

Finding Byron Glacier

A fun day walking a short way up into a valley that Byron Glacier is retreating into.  In years past there were huge ice caves here, they are a little smaller now.  Mostly clear weather, eerily quiet setting.  Not 100% relaxing because we were stumbling/scrambling around loose boulders that could have crushed our legs.  But all in all, powerful and worthwhile.
