Happy 4th of July

Here is some pictures of our 4th of July... As usual, pictures don't do the scenery justice.  I realize when you are having 100 degree weather, it is hard to imagine being so cold on the 4th of July!! We took a drive up to Hatcher Pass with David & Holly.  It is not that far away from where they live, maybe 20-30 minutes.  After walking around at the top of Hatcher Pass, we drove to Palmer to the Visitor Center.  Inside, it showed how Alaska was settled and outside it had a garden of plants grow here in Alaska.

This rock is jutting out, and it is a long way down.

Hunter, Shane & I and yes it was really cold!!

Aspen, Louisa, Brandy (notice the pond still has ice)

The pond still had ice floating all over it.
Here are some of the crew..
Hank on a rock jutting out, it is a looonggg way down...

Beautiful girls, smiles, and flowers!

Back home, we had a 4th meal outside round the campfire with 
hotdogs & hamburgers, & baked beans
