Had to make a second trip back to the homer spit before we left. We did a half day halibut fishing trip. My wife caught the big fish on the boat. It was funny watching some of the men looking around and picking up her fish for their photo. Another limit of halibut will leave some for my brothers freezer after we pack our fish box with 50lbs of halibut fillets for the flight back. If you have never had halibut, you need to. We are not what you would call fish eating people but this stuff is way good.

We leave tomorrow. 2 days in Vancouver, then cruise to Anchorage, the Denali, then back to Anchorage, then home on the 9th. I'll make sure to get some photos up along the way.

Are you taking the train to Denali? If you get the chance to spend some time in Talkeetna, the roadhouse sticky rolls are a destination spot by themselves. Have a great time, we sure have.

If you get breakfast at the roadhouse the half standard is a whole bunch of food. Pretty good also. I can't imagine how big the standard would be. The roadhouse is also a favorite spot for the Mt. Mckinnely climbers last real meal before they fly from Talkeetna to the base camp. We sat next to about a dozen the last morning we were there almost three weeks ago. They left the breakfast table loaded up on carbs, protein and fat and walked straight to the airport for thier hop up to base camp. Chances are they are still up there. Depending on conditions, it takes 3~4 weeks to summit and get back down. The reason it takes so long is because they don't take oxygen with them. They climb some and stay at that level for a couple of days, and repeat that all the way up and back down. 4 Japanese climbers died in an avalanch last week. I think it was in the national news. I couldn't imagine having 4 weeks worth of food on my back as well as all the gear needed to survive the trek. More power to them.
