After we arrived in Anchorage we picked up our visitors from New York, Gretchen and Cathy, and headed down the Kenai Peninsula to spend their 10-day vacation in the mountains by the sea. We explored Whittier - the strangest town in Alaska, made friends with locals in Hope, spent Independence Day in Homer, and rented a cabin in Chugach National Forest.
