Juneau Lake, June 7-9, 2008
The famous Resurrection Trail on the Kenai Peninsula is an old miner's route to Hope, AK. Three of the lakes on this trail have wild populations of fish to include Rainbow Trout, Grayling, Lake Trout, and Burbot. My father, Colleen, Schatze and I thought we would give Juneau Lake a try. We shaved off a couple miles by driving as far as we could on the Bean Creek trail.

This valley is one of the prettiest places on the planet.
The Romig cabin was rebuilt recently. I really liked the Swedish wood stove which kept us nice in toasty in the 35 degree night air.
I awoke at 3 a.m. to experience something difficult to describe. Far from any roads and with no wind or birds chirping there was an eary silence. Then a Loon cried a beautiful tune which echoed off the mountains back and forth for several seconds and slowly faded. Two miles away at Trout lake another Loon replied off in the distance.
