This last post will have pics from the week that we were on land in Big Lake, Alaska. We relaxed, kayaked, went hiking, enjoyed some scenic drives, rented 4 wheelers, and relaxed some more! I didn’t take as many pictures that week, and sometimes only one of us took a camera along on a hike so I don’t have those pictures yet.
Our view from the deck was lovely!
Another hike with amazing views.
Hatcher’s Pass Scenic Drive
Denali drive to see Mt. McKinley
We got some nice views before the clouds moved in (we were told that only about 15% of people get to see McKinley because of how often it develops storm systems with clouds that cover it from view).
Almost completely covered
By the time we got to the last lookout, McKinley was hiding.
We rented 4 wheelers for a day and had a guide take us through the mountains. A highlight for sure!
My hot driver (until it was time for the girls to drive!)
Some of the trails we were on.
We drove through a bit of mud.
Compared to the river we crossed, these areas were nothing!
Brian and I won the award for who got the most wet!
When we were almost finished with our riding (and safe from any wildlife), our guide taught us girls how to shoot his gun.
We saw this rainbow on the way back to our house … a beautiful way to end the day.
