WEEKENDS IN THE WILD - GLACIER EDITION

Following a work week full of sluggish computer systems, long meetings in static conference rooms and the piped-in stench of hot tar (a large building was being roofed across the street), we took off for Seward (Kenai Peninsula, Alaska) on Friday evening.

The just sub-three hour drive was a bit rough on the already-tired four year old, despite the lakes and waterfalls and freaking gigantor moose we passed. Seriously, the moose on the Peninsula have been eating their Wheaties, and possibly other moose (who have also been eating their Wheaties).

Saturday was gorgeous and, rather than bury our heads in our laptops and iPhones or strap on the Wii controller, we did this:

 Rock-walking outside the Alaska Sea Life Center

 On the path to Exit Glacier

 The edge of Exit Glacier

Exit Glacier wash-out

    1. It was quite lovely! I've been considering making postcards out of the pics my kid takes when he gets a hold of the camera. It's all out of focus adults charging at the camera, usually pointing or obviously yelling. Sometimes there are cat pictures.

    1. Thanks, Shari. We're going to try to get outside more this summer. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I'll be able to post more in this series. :)
