Today Cole and my dad went glacier exploring. I headed off to the Mercantile to do a “little laundry.” My father packs for three weeks but can never be gone longer than two days without needing to do “just a little laundry.” The bonus was a laundry facility that included outdoor picnic tables,fast internet and “just a little alone time.”
My explorers returned with great pictures and stories of a fascinating adventure.
Today’s Show and Tell…..
The start of a great adventure. Heading up to Glacier Country. The boots while not stylish do keep you from falling off the glacier.
Tippy top of Mount McKinley. This mountain has a lot of personality. Even when it is daunted by clouds it tries to give tourists a thrill and shows off a little.
A few Odd Glacier Facts: There are nearly 100,000 glaciers in Alaska. In total Alaska’s glaciers empty over 50,000 billion gallons of water into streams and rivers every summer. That’s half of all the water that flows into the worlds oceans!
The “what did you do on your summer vacation paper” should be very easy to write
And finally so many of you asked if I saw any meese….I am happy to report…I DID!!! A wild and rare ice cream eating meese! (How do I manage these kinds of pictures?? Well, Cole is very very good sport…and I don’t nag him about things like tying his shoes (sorry mom!).
