Checking out bears with Bearfoot Tours | Homer Alaska
While in Homer, we had the pleasure of going on an Airplane tour of Lake Clark National Park. We landed on the beach, and hiked around looking at Bears. It was an amazing experience, if you are going to be in Homer, give Bearfoot Tours a call....
Bearfoot Tours Alaska
Get a real up close view of grizzly bears in their natural habitat. Hop aboard a 6 person airplane, travel across the bay to a remote National Park and walk around with the grizzlies. It's like being in a zoo without bars. On your flight you may see whales in the water below, glaciers and volcanoes. Your pilot will guarantee that you will see some bears
Things to know:
• Located in Homer Alaska.
• Boots are provided.
• Plan for 4-6 hours.
• You may land on several different beaches until you find bears.
• The pilot has been flying for years and has an excellent safety record.
• Park rangers are sometimes present at Lake Clark National Park to give out Jr. Ranger badges and answer questions.
• The pilot is very knowledgeable about the bears and their environment.
• Bring snacks, sunscreen, bug spray and be prepared for changing weather.
This is a mind-blowing experience. If you truly want to see what Alaska is all about this is a must. Starting with the breathtaking views of glaciers and volcanoes to the exciting beach landing in the plane and finally watching the grizzly bears just yards away catching fish, munching on grass and cubs following their mothers, this is something you don't want to miss. After spending several months in Alaska we couldn't find anything to top this adventure and I bet you won't either.

알래스카의 빙하를 보기 위해 많은 사람들이 이 곳을 찾아 크루즈에 오른다. 세계 최대의 바다 빙하를 기대하는 사람들은 벌써부터 들뜨기 시작했다. 그런데 뜻밖에 이 큰 배의 선장과 항해사는 여자였다. 얼마 전까지 여자가 배에서 일하는 것을 금기시하던 우리나라와는 많이 달랐다. 시애틀에서 최초로 항해사 자격을 딴 여성이라는 그녀에게, 이 곳에서 일하는 이유를 물어보았다. “제가 이 곳에 오게 된 가장 큰 이유는 일 때문이었죠. 이쪽 방면에서 일할 수 있는 기회도 많고요.” “그리고 무엇보다 아름다운 곳이기 때문이죠. 빙하는 정말 좋아요. 그리고 알래스카 남동쪽도 굉장해요.” “아마도 지금 하는 이 일이 알래스카에서 해본 것 중 가장 멋진 것 같습니다.” 배가 닿은 곳은 프린스윌리엄사운드 해협이다. 1778년 이 곳을 탐험한 영국의 제임스 쿡 선장이 당시 영국 왕자의 이름을 따서 프린스 윌리엄 사운드라고 이름을 붙였다고 한다. 바다가 마치 호수와 같이 고요하고 파도가 낮았다. 주변의 산들이 병풍처럼 둘러싸고 있어 그렇다는 것을 나중에야 알 수 있었다. 곳곳에서 나타나는 해달 등의 동물들이 우리 배를 환영하는 듯했다. 노르웨이나 캐나다에도 빙하가 있지만 바다빙하를 볼 수 있는 것은 알래스카 뿐이라고 한다. 그리고 크고 작은 빙하의 수가 약 10만개가 넘는다고 하니 그 규모를 가늠하기도 어려웠다. 보통 빙하의 연령은 일만년이라고 한다. 그 오래된 빙하를 놀이터로 삼고 있는 것들이 눈에 띄었다. 해달과 물개, 바다사자 등을 비롯한 야생동물들이었다. 거대한 배와 사람이 다가가도 그들은 서두르는 법이 없었다. 그렇게 유유자적한 태도로 또 다른 장관을 연출해 보였다. 사람들은 대자연의 장관 앞에서 입을 열지 못하고 자못 숙연해 졌다. 배에 탔던 모든 사람들은 알래스카의 깨끗하고 맑은 기운을 가슴 한가득 담아서 돌아 올 수 있었다.

To view the glacier cruise in Alaska a lot of people come up to find this place. People expect the sea ice of the world's largest deultteugi already started. But unexpectedly the captain and mate of the ship was a large woman. Until recently, Korea and the woman who was different from a lot of taboo to work on the ship. Women called to her from Seattle named after the first mate qualification, asked why the work in this area. The biggest reason why I was brought here is because one was a. The opportunity to work in this direction mangoyo. And more than anything because it is a beautiful place. Glaciers are really good. And it's also awesome southeast Alaska. Maybe this thing that now seems the most stunning of the things done in Alaska. Where is the ship touches the Strait of Prince William Sound. The 1778 British Captain James Cook explored the place named after the British Prince William Sound Prince put a named said. As if the sea is calm as a lake and low waves. The surrounding mountains could be seen later that geureotdaneun surrounding it like a folding screen. Animals such as sea otters are found in some places it seemed to welcome our times. Glaciers in Norway or Canada, but being able to see sea ice and ppunyirago Alaska. And does it say about the number of large and small glaciers more than 100 000 are also difficult to gauge its scale. Average age of the glacier is called ten thousand years.

VALDEZ ALASKA in an RV [4k]
Valdez, Alaska in an RV is the best way to experience this small ocean side town. Valdez is nestled among fjords on Prince William Sound. You probably know it as the primary location affected by the Exxon Valdez oil tanker spill in the 80s.
TRIPPED TRAVEL GEAR
We make and sell travel products on Amazon. They’re totally rad.
It was the perfect spot for us to hide out for a week between Tim’s crazy Dalton adventure and the arrival of Tim’s parents the following week in to Anchorage.
It was SO NICE to finally be next to the ocean. After being in an RV for months driving through the center of North America we finally reached the coast. This finally felt like the RV experience we had been looking for. We had all the comforts of “home” as well as adventure and beautiful views right outside our door.
Valdez is a very very small town with only a few restaurants, a Best Western hotel, and LOADS of RV parks.
Somehow we managed to call the same day and get a spot right on the water at the Bear Paw RV Resort.
We had to move spots due to availability after a few days in to town, but there’s not a bad RV spot around. Every where you look you are surrounded by mountains, waterfalls and bald eagles.
It was really nice here catching up on work. The fact that Valdez Alaska is one of the wettest places in north america meant we spent a lot of time inside. We didn’t do much vlogging… hence the abnormal amount of voiceover in this episode, but we want to show what Valdez has to offer as it was one of our favorite places in the state.
It’s popular to take a day cruise out to the near by the Columbia Glacier. We opted out mostly because we were using this week to work and it was a little long to leave Pepper at home. We did love all of the other things to do in town.
Our favorite was the Solomon Gulch Fish Hatchery.
Every year this hatchery releases approximately 230 million pink salmon and 2 million coho salmon. The fish later return to the hatchery by entering the facility using a fish ladder which carry the fish from Prince William Sound “up stream”. This process is known as ocean ranching and occurs every year!
The amount of fish here was just astounding. This of course made the entire area a popular destination for other wild life.
Just up the road at other river inlets is a popular place to spot our favorite animal right off the side of the road. BEAR
There’s only one road in and out of Valdez so you’ll definitely won’t miss Bridal veil falls and the X glacier on your way in and out, unless of course you’ll be riding the ferry on the Alaska Marine highway which can take you down to south east Alaska or up closer to Anchorage.
It was time to head to Anchorage where we met up with a couple who had found us through our New Zealand videos. Fortunately for us they happen to be the owners of Double Shovel Brewing in Anchorage and were wonderful hosts for the evening.
So at this time, Double Shovel isn’t on Harvest Hosts yet, but there is one harvest host in Anchorage. We would definitely recommend checking them out because, surprisingly enough, downtown Anchorage had THE WORST RV options we’ve seen the entire trip.
Another big thanks to Galen and Morgan who made our visit to Anchorage very memorable, or not… if you know what I mean.
Stay tuned for Sunday where we head to Seward with Tim’s parents and kayak to the Aialik Glacier with one of the funniest people we met on the trip…

Alaska is the largest state in the United States in land area at 570,374 square miles, over twice the size of Texas
Mount McKinley, or Denali The High One is the highest mountain in the United States and North America with an elevation of 20,320 feet.
Anchorage is Alaska's largest city with over 291,000 residents. At 61 degrees north is it slightly more northern than Oslo and Stockholm.
Because of the northern latitude, in the summer the days are very long although the temperatures rarely rise above the 70s. But that doesn't stop Alaska's residents from shedding their parkas for shorts the moment the sun appears.
Oscar Anderson was an early Anchorage resident, said to be the 18th person to set foot on the area and his house, built in 1915 was the first wood-frame house in Anchorage.
The Glacier Brewhouse is both a brewery and one of Anchorage's top restaurants. The place gets busy early so it is a good idea to make reservations. Aside from rotisserie meats the menu features lots of fresh local seafood. And who ever had fresh raspberry whet beer? The brewhouse was brewing it and it was delicious. Alaska glacier bottled water is a great way to taste the purity of the environment around Anchorage. This bottled water is a popular drink for Asians who visit and refer glaciers. Although there were rave reviews about the seafood chowder and the calamari, I tried the pita with hummus which was a great appetizer that went well with the raspberry wheat beer.
One can't be in Alaska without tasting king crab legs. The fresh version is more spectacular than the deep freeze version we get in the lower 48. Alaskan halibut also shines over their southern neighbors and at Glacier Brewhouse they serve it with a healthy balsamic salad and a not so healthy side of fries.
A popular street food are reindeer hot dogs which are actually a blend of pork sausage and reindeer. I didn't taste it but I understand it is a must try, unless you are Santa Claus. There are lots of tourist shops selling made in China souvenirs but if you want something that is truly Alaskan and unique, The Oomingmak Qiviut shop is an Alaskan native cooperative that produces Muskox products.
It is owned by approximately 250 Native Alaskan women from remote coastal villages of Alaska who knit each item by hand. Each village has a signature pattern derived from traditional aspects of village life and the Eskimo culture; they may come from an ancient artifact or a beadwork design.
The name Musk Ox is deceiving, as the animal does not produce musk, nor is it related to cattle. Skeletal and behavioral studies show a closer relationship to sheep and goats Qiviut is shed naturally each year during the spring months.
About 40 miles south of Anchorage is the Alyeska ski resort -- even in May there is abundant snow -- although skiers were not about. It has an average of 643 of annual snowfall and is known for its steep terrain. For off piste skiing - Chugach Powder Guides operate snowcat or helicopter adventure in the world-famous Chugach Mountain Range. Helicopters guarantee 16 - 20,000 vertical feet of skiing per day. The cost $1125 per person. If that price is unbearable ... the normal day ski lift pass is $60 for an adult.
Not far from Alyeska is Portage and the home of the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. The center takes in injured and orphaned animals and many who cannot be released into the wild are given a permanent home at the center.
Snickers, the porcupine is one such creature that was raised in a home and has a lot of personality .. so much so that a youtube video featuring him with almost 1.8 million views. (youtube.com/watch?v=U5I5H7EeC8k)
The center had recently taken in three orphaned moose calves who keep the four-year old moose Jack company. Jack had arrived at the center as a 3-day old moose with bite marks and a broken leg .. and a 20% chance of survival.
Muskox who's warm fur is used in making Qiviut products are an arctic survivor. Their thick coat grows up to 36 inches long.
The wood bison were extinct from Alaska until they were reintroduced in 2003. They are the largest land animal in North America.
Bears are also residents at the center including brown bears, black bears and a grizzly bear.
Heading south toward the coastal town of Whittier brings one to the Whittier tunnel. This is the longest combined railroad car tunnel in North America and connects the commuters between the Prince William Sound and Turnagain Arm. The tunnel opened in 1943.
Whittier is home to lots of sea life from birds, to sea otters, seals, whales, and sea lions.
In 1964 a 9.2 magnitude earthquake (the largest ever recorded in North America)
generated a major tectonic tsunami. The waves destroyed Girdwood and Portage and evidence of the damage today is still visible from the dead wood forests in the area.

The Best Outdoor Adventures: Hidden Gems of Anchorage
Built on a Fjord and surrounded by packs of inlets and lakes, some of Anchorage's the best outdoor adventures are on water. Watch as Peter heads to the beautiful Lake Eklutna for a private kayaking session. Then he takes an eight mile bike ride back on the trail through America's northern most rainforest. Follow along on some of Anchorage's best outdoor adventures.
Thank you for joining me on this stop on my 2017 Journey To Alaska. Today by the use of pictures and video clips we will check out Hope, Alaska.
Currently home to fewer than 200 residents, Hope was once packed with 3,000-all drawn by gold fever. In 1889, a few years before the Klondike gold rush began to lure people north, a miner discovered nuggets in nearby Resurrection Creek. Soon prospectors found gold in nearby Six Mile Creek, and the rush to Turnagain Arm began. According to local lore, this growing community of tents and cabins chose to name their town after the youngest rusher to step off the next boat-17-year-old Percy Hope. Whether or not the story is true, the name certainly evokes the optimism of every prospector who arrived in Hope in search of a fortune.

Nabesna Road, Alaska, USA
This is one of the best place to visit in Alaska. Strongly recommanded.
