The Sterling Highway begins 90 miles south of Anchorage, branching off the Seward Highway at Tern Lake, it heads south to Homer, Alaska. This route winds along the western edge of the Kenai Peninsula, through majestic mountain scenery, and passes picturesque lakes and glacial streams for 142 miles. Pictured here is just a glimpse of this splendid land, a view from the overlook at Cooper Landing. The river begins here at Lake Kenai in the Kenai Range, and flows southward. Consider the size of Alaska; and when it's heard that the Kenai River is the most popular sport fishing destination in the state, that's really saying something! The rainbow trout and Dolly Varden here are talked about in trophy size terms. Two yearly runs of salmon, and naturally, the world record king salmon.
