Tschumper's Alaskan Journey 2007 travel blog









One Hundred miles S. of Denali is Nancy Lake Rec area. Our campsite was on the shores of S Rolly Lake. Rolly Lake is a beautiful state park with glass water rimmed in pine and hard wood forest. Sunset is at 11:00 PM.

We had fun learning how to pilot an inflatable kayak.

We spent the July 4th holiday with Michelle and her boyfriend David's family and friends at their cottage.

A whole pig was roasted on the BBQ

with lots of tasty side dishes. David's cousin Jan took us on a party boat

lake tour along with many jet skis, water skiers, and a float plane taking off.

Friday we went fishing for the King Salmon. We were dropped off up river by a jet boat and hiked about a half mile across two rivers to Clear Creek where the salmon spawn.

We fished five hours but didn't catch anything but small trout. Other did.

We had one black bear visit but it didn't stop the fishing. There were several 357 rifles at the site. We had several days of gentle rain that often cleared to picturesque skies.
