It was another fabulous month on The Kenai, Alaska’s Playground! From stunning sunsets and sunrises to enchanting river and mountain views – no stone of beauty was left unturned this April 2016 all across the Kenai Peninsula.

Surfcasting from the beach for halibut is excellent this time of year. We were consistently catching fish around 20-30 pounds which are small in size yet perfect for eating.

Walking the dogs at 6AM is worth it on the Kenai Peninsula when you have a sunrise like this… WOW!

Easy like Sunday morning turned into a pretty rugged and adventurous hike into the backcountry off of Tustemena Lake. With turquoise blue views like this, it was easy to keep going and going. Absolutely breathtaking!

The views of the huge snow-capped mountains in the distance was enough to completely knock us off our feet. Well, that and we needed an excuse to sit down and soak it all in (and tear into the picnic basket).

A mid-week sunset at Kenai Beach off of Cannery Beach Road was the perfect way to break up the monotony of the work week and keep us motivated to push through until the weekend rolled around.

Hidden Lake with the mountains in the distance was gleaming with beauty this April as the trees started to gain back color and the bluebird sky shined in the distance.

It never seizes to amaze us how much Alaska shows off before most of the world is even awake. This sunrise painted the sky with vibrant colors before 7am on a Tuesday. The Kenai Peninsula is truly a magical playground.

Across Skilak Lake in the Northeast corner was this completely secluded fishing spot that produced a handful of beautiful rainbow trout this April. Fly fishing in peace is a breath of fresh air from the summertime combat fishing. But who are we kidding, we love it all!

The perfect way to spend a Friday night on The Kenai, Alaska’s Playground is by beach bummin’ it and sticking around to watch one of the most beautiful sunsets in the entire world.

When you have 60 degree temperatures and not a hint of wind in the air, spending the day slowly drifting the river and wetting some lines is the closest feeling to ‘heaven on earth’ that we can imagine.

The endless beauty at Kenai Lake in Cooper Landing is another fantastic way to spend the day getting lost in translation in the great outdoors on Alaska’s Playground.

Enjoying dinner over campfire at Kasilof Beach is something that feels so amazing, it’s almost like it came straight out of a dream.

And sticking around to enjoy every last minute of cracking campfire, saltwater breeze and fresh air until the sun goes down and it turns to pitch black outside… ALWAYS totally worth it.
