Alaska, The Last Frontier and Great Vacation Place
Each year I try to take a vacation that incorporates my passion for the outdoors and the majestic beauty of America. This year I decided to head to the great state of Alaska to fish and enjoy the great outdoors. I was amazed at the beauty and the diverse landscapes that make up the state’s topography. It is one of the few places that you can view snowcapped mountains while walking through plush green pastures. The wildlife is amazing and abundant giving visitors a true sense of rugged exploration.
I enjoyed world class Alaska fishing for salmon, trout, and halibut coupled with the finest lodging on the Kenai River. The fishing action was incredible. I caught so many fish that I lost count. In addition, the people were extremely pleasant and the hospitality was beyond reproach.
The lodge was located in the heart of the beautiful Kenai Peninsula near Soldotna about three hours south of Anchorage. After being exhausted from all that fishing, I enjoyed a wide variety of other activities including glacier tours, kayaking, flightseeing, and horseback riding through the mountains. If you haven’t had a chance to visit Alaska, the Patriots strongly recommend that you consider vacationing in our 49th state.
