Where’d that wind come from?

This movie requires Flash Player 9

Oh man, is it windy! With gusts up to 50-70mph, we couldn’t land on Naknek Lake, but rather on Brooks Lake. So it was a new logistical challenge. Not for us, but for Katmai Air who being pros, had it all worked out. They bussed us down to the bridge, it was open so we crossed, checked in at the Visitor Center for the campground (made a new friend, HI Zac!) and then headed into the lodge for lunch.

Sharon couldn’t wait to get camp set up. With it being 1/2 mile away, the Park Service makes available these cool carts to get your gear to camp. With all the gear, it took three carts to get all the gear down to campground. No, Sharon didn’t pull the cart, the guys took them down.

But by her reaction, you’d think she did! Na, she was happy because the new tent went up without a hitch. With all three tents up and all gear stored, cameras are out and we’re heading off to the falls. We already had a couple of bears at camp so she has her wish, camping with bears. Keep in mind, I’m on vacation so the posts will be on the humorous side :)
