“Whether you come by land, air, or water, getting to Homer is an odyssey. All routes cross a region of extraordinary natural wonders. Then the town greets you like a giant pop-up card:forbidding mountains, alpine glaciers, dense evergreen forests, a fast-moving sea, the 4½-mile-long sand spit, and a thriving community.”
