looking for adventure and whatever comes our way

May offered up a lot of adventures, but possibly none as fun as our two days spent down in Cooper Landing camping on Kenai Lake and rafting on Kenai River with David, Heidi and their wily gang of hooligans, Peter, Harper, and Jasper. Ben and I found the perfect spot to camp along the Lake. […]
