You'll be reading this blog entry when I'm on my way through Rocky Pass and El Capitan in Southwest Alaska, two tricky passages we'll traverse for the first time on our way to Dixon Entrance. Not only are these routes serpentine and narrow, but they are shallow and we'll need to watch out for strong currents in some places. So you might ask why we don't take a less tricky route on our way south. Good question. One reason is this is a shorter 'road' to Dixon Entrance. Better: other boaters tell us the scenery is gorgeous. My husband would add this reason: this is a challenge for us and a new experience.
We've enjoyed returning to familiar places on this, our last trip to Alaska by boat, but we've taken pleasure in new experiences as well. Take a look at our journey in our blog: http://steveandrolynn.blogspot.com/ and follow our 'bread crumbs' on our SPOT GPS (you'll find the site on our blog).
Happy summer to you all. Forgive me if I don't respond to comments...I won't have access to the internet for all of July. Rolynn
