Birthday Trip to Seward, Part 2

As you look at this entry's pictures, you'll see there is not a single fishing photo. That is because by the time we got our lines in the water, it started pouring down and never let up. That along with the high winds that suddenly appeared, made for an unpleasant and very short day of fishing. Even with rain jackets on, we both managed to get soaked and cold.
 Better luck next time!
Sunday morning we did scout out some other places to fish next time.
 This is the monument for Mile 1 of the Iditarod trail.
 We drove around the bay and took a few pics of Seward from the other side.
 You can really see how the town is between the water and mountains on such a slim strip of land.
 Did manage to get a couple of pictures of a moose hiding in a thicket.
 This will give you an idea of how hard it is to see them sometimes.
 Even though it was a fairly sunny day, you can still see that ice remains on some lakes.
The National Weather Service has declared this snow season to have the least snowfall on record. We usually average 75 inches of snow but this year we barely got 25 inches of snow. I will be flying down to visit family and friends for a few weeks. We have some adventures planned for mid June when I return!
