You Kids Get Off My Lawn

This park in the Alaskan Kenai Peninsula is named after someone who I can only assume was a handsome, charming, and patriotic American. Although if you aren't from Alaska, no dipnet salmon fishing for you -- that's only for locals.

You may however participate in Combat Fishing. I'm not sure what that is, but apparently the local medical clinic has quite a bit of experience removing fish hooks.

The son of a local Kenai couple, Erik Hansen was an Eagle Scout who died of brain cancer at the age of 32. His younger brother Leif was also an Eagle Scout, and also died tragically young in an accidental drowning; Leif Hansen Memorial Park is only a few miles away in the city center.
