Gorgeous. I vote "NO" on the Pebble Mine but an emphatic "YES" on this photo.
I drove this route around the reservoir in Jan 2012 and the gate was closed and locked. If you are biking or motorcycling it's passable but you cannot pass in a car or truck.
Thanks for the info, you have a beautiful city. Where can I find info about the people who live up the bay at Kachemak Silo?
