This whole area is just beautiful. The bay, the hikes, the glaciers. So many pictures were taken. We liked Homer the best . We started at Anchorage and traveled south and hit all the cities. The view (when clear) as you come around the corner into Homer is the best.
We took a water taxi across Kachemak Bay to the trail head for the Glacier Lake Trail. Although the day was cloudy we were lucky that it did not rain. The trail is easy with just minimal elevation gain. After about 3 miles we reached the lake with great views of the Grewingk Glacier across the lake and many icebergs... 更多
We loved this hike! We even saw orcas on our return in the water taxi. The woods was full of flowers and the lake with the beautiful blue glacier was spectacular.
We took a water taxi over to the park and were lucky that it was a clear day as it would have been hazardous if the trail was wet.
We took a Mako's water taxi across the bay and hiked on the Glacier Lake Trail. This is an easy trail that takes you to a glacial lake at the edge of Grewingk Glacier. Make sure to bring a jacket there are lots of icebergs floating in the lake so it's pretty cold. We were dropped of at the glacier... 更多
Spent the day Kayaking Kachemak Bay State Park and it was great. Whales, Seals, Otters, Eagles, and other Sea Birds all graced our presence as we slid quietly through the waters.
My wife and three children hiked this trail to the glacier ~ 6 miles total. Our children are 13, 11, 7....and they all did fine. This is a very cool experience to see a glacier and icebergs floating in the glacier lake.
We took a boat taxi to the park and hiked up to Glacier Lake. The hike was no problem. The view as you approach the lake is breath taking. The area is so serene and beautiful.
