AK Day 1

Our time in Alaska started with a bang. We dropped our luggage and off we went.

4 wheeling.

I rode with my father-in-law and Brian rode with my husband. It was Brian's first time on a 4 wheeler, so we took some time to get used to it. Eventually we figured out the ideal position, one that would keep Brian's legs off of the hot metal of the engine. If you look carefully you can see where we duct taped Brian's pant legs.

Here we are just getting started. We spent a few minutes in the parking area to make sure that Brian would be okay.

Then off we went...

I hopped on their ATV and took a family photo.

Hmmm, and we were worried that Brian wouldn't have fun...

Of course, I stopped a few times to take pictures of the scenery.

Here we stopped to look at an area that had had an avalanche this last winter. The amount of destruction was amazing.

All in all it was a fun outing for a few hours. Plus it got Brian used to the 4 wheelers. By the end of the day we were all exhausted (having woken up at 5 am to catch a plane and all).
