Russian River Camping
While Zoe was here visiting we spent a couple of days camping on the Russian River in Cooper Landing. The campground is always packed with people fishing at the confluence between the Russian and Kenai rivers, but we had booked our camp site for just after the last salmon run was over and hardly anyone was out fishing.
The quiet and mostly empty campground combined with the fantastic sunny weather for the best camping experience I have ever had.
We played games and fed some squirrels and did some hiking and cooked s'moores and the dogs chased squirrels up trees. I didn't get cold or wet or cranky and I read most of a weird Hawaiian leprosy book.
Basically, it was amazing.
