Here There and Everywhere

Summit Lake Lodge and the Sterling Highway

We hate to leave Homer, a truly wonderful place on God’s earth, and even more glorious in the full sunlight:

We drive along the Sterling Highway en route to Anchorage, a totally different day from the rainy day we drove from Seward to Homer. On this day, we are caught in traffic, all the fisherpeople heading to the Kenai river, lined up to catch salmon. The scenery is beautiful, and AdventureMan spots a moose and her calf (not pictured) grazing near the highway.

We stop for gas and a pit stop at Grizzly Ridge, and the restrooms are immaculately clean:

We start getting hungry. We actually stop at one place, but the food is all tired looking, and not fresh, so we continue on. AdventureMan spots Summit Lake Lodge and we agree this is the right pace to stop:

After lunch, we stretch our legs a little; Summit Lake Lodge is on a beautiful, huge lake:

There is a beautiful ice cream and coffee shop on the Lodge grounds where we enjoy a huckleberry ice cream before we hit the road again on our way to Anchorage.
