So we packed some snacks, a couple of towels, change of clothes, and we were out the door. All three of us were excited for our adventure and could not wait to see what was in store for us. Well, about 30 minutes out of town the rain started to come down. The clouds were not looking promising. We decided to push on because you can never tell with Alaska weather what is going to happen.
After 20 minutes of little sprinkles of rain here and downpours there we were wondering if we would be able to enjoy the outdoors. We stopped at a couple of areas but as soon as we stepped out of the car we were swarmed by mosquitoes! It was horrible and guess who forgot the bug spray?!?!? The sad part was that I remembered to grab the bug spray but forgot to grab it (if that makes sense). After about 10 minutes of being attacked by mosquitoes we decided to head back towards home.
We were a little disappointed that we could not go through with our plans but we really had a good time. Just the three of us with no distractions was very enjoyable. These are the times where we wish for our hero to be home.
The best part of the trip was being able to see God's creatures:
|Two calf moose|
|Momma is just behind bushes in the water|
|Momma with her head in the water|
