Cold with rain on and off all day today. The temperature never got above 57 degrees.

I drove north on Sterling Highway stopping for fuel for the SUV at Anchor Point. 14.208 gallons at $4.26 a gallon – five cents a gallon cheaper than in Homer. I continued north to Ninilchik, Alaska to the Holy Transfiguration of Our Lord Chapel. The old Russian Orthodox Church, built in 1900, and the historic cemetery overlook the entire rustic village of Ninilchik. The church was open and I was able to go inside. Next to the church cemetery is the Ninilchik American Legion Cemetery.

After visiting Ninilchik I drove south on the Sterling Highway to Anchor Point, Alaska. I drove out Beach Road to North America’s Most Westerly Highway Point – the furthest point west one can drive. On a clear day you can see five active volcanoes across Cook Inlet; however, today was not one of those days.

I returned to Homer and drove out Kachemak Drive until it intersected with East End Road. I took East End Road back into Homer and back to the RV.

94.7 SUV miles today.
