Absolutely beautiful. something to see for all ages - be sure to bring a good camera, rain gear (just in case) and binoculars wouldn't be a bad idea to throw in.

A water taxi from Homer brought us to Glacier Spit and dropped us off at the Glacier Lake Trail. The literature says it is an easy trail. Not really. We are walkers in our 60s, more than hikers. The trail is level, but the rocky, root filled trail makes for slow hiking. Go early and pack a lunch. Take mosquito spray. It is a 3.2 mi hike to the Glacial Lake. You are so glad to get there, and once there feel you've earned the view. I could have stayed longer, but had to meet up with our water taxi at Saddle. Taking the Saddle Trail 1 mile from the lake to shore was downhill but a hard walk. I'd never walk up it. If it rains the trail turns to gutters of water. We came across park workers who are trying to rework the trail to make it easier to get down. It will be a while though. The views are fabulous once near the water. This is an experience like none other. Steps on my Fitbit showed 20,000.

What a beautiful place! It's like Grand Teton range on the water. The view is amazing and it goes on and on. We flew over it and kayaked around one of the islands.

Take a float plane ride across Kachemak Bay and land in Grewengk Lake where a Naturalist will get your kayak and gear ready to paddle around the icebergs. Learn the history of earthquakes and see for yourself the damage from years ago in Kachemake Bay State Park. Hike back to the bay for a water taxi ride back to Homer Harbor..if your lucky and it's berry season pick on your way. Salmon berries rule!
