Kayaking in Pedersen Lagoon, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska.
A kayak is a great way to get around Aialik Bay and Pedersen Lagoon. This was a little early in the season – the icebergs are a little thick by the entrance at this time of year making it a little tricky picking your way through the maze – tricky but fun! As the summer continues, it get easier.
There are numerous beaches for camping all around the bay, and the Park Service has food storage boxes at most of the best beaches, so you don’t need to worry about lugging bear proof food containers. The one thing you do have to worry about it the unpredictable weather. Short sleeve days like the one pictured aren’t very common.
