What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Depart Anchorage and fly the length of Cook Inlet to Cape Douglas at the north end of the Katmai beaches. Set-up camp and hike to the meadow where we usually find bears.
Explore and enjoy from our base camp. Beach walks, hikes up to the glacier, searching for Aliutiq house pits, beach combing for glass fishing floats, watching bears grazing on the sedge meadows, walking the sea-cliffs out by the cape, and who knows what else. The solitude and majesty of the location can’t be beat.
July 11- 12
Pack-up and head south down the Katmai Coast. Stops at Big River, Swikshak Lagoon and Halo Bay are all in order. We can camp on the beach or in the mountains these nights. Of course everything is dependant on the weather.
We have most of the day to explore south along the Katmai Coast landing on rarely visited beaches, taking aerial photos of the coast and volcanoes. By nightfall we will need to fly back to Anchorage to end the trip.
