On Aug. 8, I attended the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Kenai. One of the films really raised my hackles.
"Long Live the King," a Fly Out Media video, is sponsored by makers of high-end gear and apparel, among them Orvis, Patagonia, and Smith Optics.
My favorite place to birdwatch, or "bird," on the Kenai Peninsula is the Kenai Flats. "The Flats" are not merely the wetlands you see from Bridge Access Road or from the bluff near the Kenai Senior Center.
Last summer, my boyfriend Bjorn and I went for a three-day sun-drenched kayak trip at Admiralty Island's Windfall Harbor. We squinted into the merciless horizon to see an orca with a hooked fin swimming slowly past us.
