Bretwood Higman, left, and Erin McKittrick, right, follow their daughter, Lityua, 2, walking on East End Road Sunday during the Homer leg of their expedition from the southern end of the Kenai Peninsula to Cape Douglas around Cook Inlet. Their son Katmai, 4, far left, also is on the trip. Joining them for a Homer visit is Higman’s mother, Dede Higman, center. The family left Seldovia in late March for their “Tracing the Heart of Alaska” expedition around the east side of Cook Inlet, across to the west side of the inlet and to Cape Douglas.
