With recollections of our Clam Gulch to Homer fatbiking beach ride tempting us to sample some sand once again, SuperBlinky and I decided to revisit the Kenai for a weekend of further exploration.
Since we were familiar with the southerly route we previously rode, plans were made for a bit more northerly destination to investigate. Unlike our last venture, which included full-on camping gear, we wanted this to have more of a playful riding style flavor. Joining us on his first inlet foray on fatbikes was AKTay49.
Previous documentation by Pat Irwin and Kathy, and then also by Bearbait, had long ago planted the seed to visit the stretch south of Chickaloon Bay. We base camped at Capt. Cook Rec Area, which made day trips possible without heavily loaded bikes.
After arriving on a Friday evening and getting camp established we gave the legs a spin. Near high-tide conditions still left plenty of exposed beach, so we decided to casually meander at least as far as the landmark cabin Pat made famous.
After a few hours of play, frosty treats were earned back in camp. Sleeping aid of course!
We awoke to blue skies, calm waters, and warm temps - it felt like our first true day of summer.
With low tide a few hours away we knew we'd have plenty of time to let loose. No epics, no agenda, just get out there and dink around. So we did.....
Low tide revealed tons of captivating stone features as the miles passed.
You were never really sure what you might see next!
But undoubtedly the rock formations continued to amaze.
You could clamber about....
....or continue to search....
...for that playful lure.
At day's end more frosty treats were enjoyed at beachside to the lowering sun. What a kick.
