We left Girdwood this morning and drove farther around Turnagain Basin and Cook Inlet to Homer (Halibut Capitol of the World). There are so many snow-capped mountain ranges in Alaska it’s amazing. While eating out this evening we heard that there had been a 7.4 earthquake in the Aleutian Islands. The local fishermen were a bit freaked and were listening for a tsunami alert siren. There turned out to be an alert (that was cancelled) and I can see why they would be concerned. Homer is at the very mouth of Cook Inlet and all of their boats would be at risk. We are staying in a house way up in the mountains so we’d always be safe. But this is definately earthquake country. This will be short as some of us are going on kayaking trips and ferry trips tomorrow early.
