Mako's water taxi ((http://www.makoswatertaxi.com/) dropped Heather and I off at the beach at Kachemak Bay State Park at low tide. We jumped off the bow of the boat into knee-high water and waded to shore where we prepared for our hike. In this photo, you can see a orange sign on a tree that marks the start of the Glacier Lake trail. Our day hike took us 9 miles, around the mouth of a glacier, up a ridge and back to a beach 4 miles southwest on the coast from where we started.
Kachemak Bay State Park ((http://www.dnr.state.ak.us/parks/units/kbay/kbay.htm) is Alaska's first state park containing ~ 400,000 acres of wilderness, glaciers, forests and ocean! It truely is a wilderness experience.
