Knik Arm and the Kenai Peninsula

We are flying with Ketchum Air Service, and our driver is none other than "Ketch" himself - one of a hardy breed of professional bush pilots. There's an early heat wave - 63 degrees F on the ground - and Ketch is not above plunging down to get a really quick look at moose or other fauna starting to show themselves as a premature thaw starts to set in among the trees beyond Knik Arm. This is a very tidal reach. We are headed across it, and beyond, to the Kenai Peninsula, pronounced "keen-eye", a vast area where floatplanes can land on lakes totally remote from civilisation, and where you have to realise that the wildlife quite definitely includes bears.
