This is my awesome little hometown during some nice weather last week! Since I was flying in a helicopter with the doors off on my way to Bear Glacier, I thought I would grab a few photos of my favorite town. I kinda like this photo as it shows not only the town, but the boat harbor and the trail up Mt. Marathon – two things that really help define this coastal community. For those that don’t know, the 4th of July race up and down Mt. Marathon is the second oldest foot race in the United States, second to only the Boston Marathon – and a huge visitor draw to Seward each year. Once upon a time I used to run the race, now I save the mileage on my knees for packing camera gear.
