The pilgrimage was generally painful and fraught with frustration, but it did have one very bright point... a glowing, brilliant, scintillating beacon of light. My father made reservations for Master and I to go on a salmon fishing trip down the Kasilof river. The guide had this float boat powered by only the muscles in his arms... I mean having a handsome strong tanned man row your boat all day is amazing. This is a pic of another group getting the same treatment.
One of the most magical things was the weather... bright blue skies... warm breezes...
If you ever have the chance, don't pass it up. It was dreamlike.
