Photos from the Kenai Peninsula (Alaska)

Quite a few photos I took around the Kenai Peninsula, between Anchorage, Homer and Seward - along the Kenai and Kasilof rivers, Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay.

For more information about the area, please check out the post for my corresponding Moving Postcard video: "Kenai Peninsula (Alaska) – In Another Minute (Week 323)"
