It's choice, not chance, that determines your destiny

This is my blog about life - travel - new experiences - growth.

I'm back in. Girdwood, this time at the public library, which was closed the other day. Girdwood is about 15 miles from where we're camped so we have to plan a bit in order to make the trip here. Today has been the first day it hasn't rained in a few days and it's nice to see the sun. We're hoping it will clear up enough to take the tram up the mountain to get a few pictures but it doesn't look promising. In the meantime I'll post a few that I've already taken of the surrounding area.
This is where we're parked - very clean, well maintained campground without hookups.

A homestead in Hope, AK

The following are along the Trail of Blue Ice - right outside my door!

These are pictures of a typical morning on Turnagain Arm:

This next one is Portage Lake and Glacier:
The following are Byron Glacier and the short walk we took to get there:

They will be so thrilled, especially Robert who is all about nature!! We love you!! Take care and can't wait until the next post! Happy 4th of July!! (Well, in a few hours.)

  2. Yikes! Aunt Sherri, we just heard on the news some bicyclists were attacked by a momma grizzly protecting her babies in Hope!! Be careful!! We love you!
