Anchorage -
Cook Inlet

June 23, 2001 

Since leaving the airport at midnight, we had been on the road for 13 hours, covered 460 miles - and were 5 miles south of our original starting point - but that was the plan. We were back in Anchorage on Alaska Highway 1.
    We were overlooking the Cook Inlet which connects Anchorage to the Pacific Ocean, about 150 miles to the southwest.  This was the beginning of one of the most beautiful rides in the world.  Cook Inlet is ringed by coastal mountains that have that lush coastal green color with snow capped peaks.  Quite a sight, and quite a start as we began our trip south through the Kenai Peninsula.
