Day 28, Wednesday, 5/16/18
Seward, Alaska

We had the oil changed on the van this morning, then did a leisurely exit from Homer and started for Seward. The day was overcast as we headed north on Highway 1. The topography from Homer up to Turnagain Arm is mostly shrub lands, wetlands and boreal forest (mostly black spruce, pine, fir). The moose viewing was great!

Just outside of Homer, we stopped at an overlook and had lunch in the drizzle - chili.

Driving on, we entered the Chugach (chew - gash) mountains near Cooper Landing, then took a right on Highway 9 headed south. There's a small town called Moose Pass that we passed through. Not really a mountain pass, it got its name when moose blocked a mail carrier's dog team. From Moose Pass, it was about 30 miles to Seward. On a whim, we turned into the Kenai Fjords National Park road. The road leads to a visitor center and a few trails to Exit glacier.

Tomorrow, we'll drive back into the park and take a hike.
