Six days after coming home from Sea Ranch, Nate packed up again and headed to Alaska with his friend Andy. They spent ten days fishing, bear watching and taking in the beauty that is Alaska.
First stop was King Salmon, where the boys boarded a float plane for Katmai National Park.
For three days these bears provided great entertainment for Andy and Nate.
After fishing and walking with the bears for a few days, the guys said good-bye to their four-legged friends and flew back to Anchorage.
A lot of time was spent fishing in their usual favorite places, although the catch this year wasn't nearly as fruitful as in years past. But, even failure to catch fish is less disappointing when you get to do it in beautiful Alaska.
If Nate is guilty of any addiction, it's Alaska. He literally craves it. Every time he's there he thinks
about buying land. If only work had an office in Anchorage...
We missed him like crazy and were glad that he didn't decide to take up permanent residence with those bears. The next time, he promises that our boys will be up there with him...and maybe mom too.
