A Winter Ride to Hope, AK

Jerry and Cheryle James took us for a ride to Hope, AK on Feb, 2. The awesomeness never stopped.

Anchor Point Boat Launch

This is a bit different than your typical boat launch. The 3 min video depicts about 6 minutes of activity of some very efficient launch workers. We were a bit taken aback when we signed up for a halibut fishing expedition and saw this process.

Works like a charm though.

Monument, CO to Great Falls, MT - off to Alaska

We are returning to Wildmans in Cooper Landing, AK with our Heartland Bighorn 5th wheel RV. This will be our 3rd round trip over the Alaska Highway with our 3670. We will be posting videos of our journey. Also please follow us on http://mogeopo.com/alaska2014.

Kenai River Rafting Trip

While working at Wildman's in Cooper Landing, AK, I was invited to join some friends (Bobbi, Mike and Fred) and raft down the Kenai River through the canyon to Skilak Lake. We chose to use Alaska Wildlife Adventures as our guide.

Here is a brief sampling of what we experienced.

Moose on Skilak

Moose Encounter

While on a Wildman's shuttle, Jack and I enjoyed this moose moment.

The Caribou

As we were driving down the Tok Cutoff, we encountered this herd of caribou strolling along the highway. It was an awesome welcome to Alaska.

Bear Attacking Car in Cooper Landing

While shuttling vehicles for Wildman's in Cooper Landing, we witnessed this brown bear (grizzly) not too pleased with all the attention. We were on the Sterling Highway about 4 miles west of Wildman's.

1st Day of Salmon - Cooper Landing, AK

The feeling around Cooper Landing on the opening day of salmon (reds - sockeye) is amazing. Everyone is excited, happy and anxious. Please join me as I visit various locations along the Kenai.

08-01 Dipnetting on the Russian River

In September, our daughter Andi and I joined Rudy and JJ on their dipnetting excursion on the Russian River in Cooper Landing, AK. It was a long anticipated opportunity and we weren't disappointed.

Please join us on this adventure.

A Bunch of Grizzlies

We decided to go to the Russian River in Cooper Landing, AK to see if we could see some brown bears (grizzlies). The experience greatly exceeded our expectation.

Top of the World Highway & Chicken, AK

Please join us while we give you a glimpse of the drive on the Top of the world highway and Chicken, AK.

As we drove past miles of burned out forest, we remembered back to 2004 when we entered Alaska and smelled smoke. 6 million acres of wildfires scorched the vast forests.

We were awestruck by the sight of the forests that went on forever after we went beyond the burn area.

The condition of the dirt road turned us around before we reached the border, but we came away amazed.
