1597-Homer, AK

Homer is the halibut fishing capital of the world and also known as the “drinking town with a fishing problem.” It is a couple of hundred miles south of Anchorage and the highway travels through some of the most gorgeous areas of southern Alaska. Along the Turnagain Arm and up over Moose Pass, the waters and mountains are memorable. I wanted to ride my motorcycle to the “end of the road” before I travelled north to the other “end of the road” in Prudhoe Bay. Homer has a section called the “spit.” It is a long section of land that houses the cruise ship port, commercial fishing fleet, art galleries, and camping areas. The “spit” is where most of the action in Home is.
