Springtime in Seward
As Spring approaches seasons blend. The mountains are still snow covered and choices for a days activity range from hiking to biking to skiing or paddling.
For this sunny day skiing Mt Marathon was the choice. We climbed into the bowl for some great turns on nearly perfect corn snow.
Hard not to smile on a day like this ...
Long days allow for multiple activities. Early evening paddles are a nice way to finish a day.
We weren’t the only ones enjoying the water that day. Steller sea lions greeted us as they cruised Lowell Point. They appeared to be chasing an abundant run of Herring and perhaps Dolly Vardin. Along the way they found us interesting enough to stop for a moment to check us out. I’m not sure what the sea lions thought.
