In my previous post, I shared my adventure with Heidi and our hike to Blacktail Rock. Here is a panoramic view of our hike - Mt. Baldy is the small peak on the back left and then we hiked the whole ridge line to the upfront peak on the right. Of course I captured this view of our previous hike on one of my hiking adventures this past week.
Previously, I thought I had hiked the summit of Mt. Magnificent - turns out I was wrong. I was at one of the many false summits. So, I headed out to try and reach the true summit this week. Thinking I had made it by the Alaska State Flag flying at the top - only to discover I was at the top of Tucker Mountain. The view of the valley was breath taking and it was a great place to stop for this evening hike. I was probably another hour or so away from the summit of Mt. Magnificent. Definitely going to find that summit before summer is over!!
My friend Anna and I took a hike this week to the top of Harp Mountain. It was great to overlook a different part of the Chugach Mountains.
The day had been mostly cloudy and finally got sunny and warm around 6:30pm. So once we had our kiddos in bed - off on a hike we went!
We have so much fun together and enjoyed our summit beers!
Not to mention a beautiful sunset on our hike back down.
A new adventure for this summer was an invitation to do a brewery bike ride. Why not?
It was a great time to meet up with both old and new friends.
The Anchorage Brewery is stunning! If you get a chance to stop in, it is so worth your time.
The kiddos have been busy hanging out and doing adventures with Papa since I've been working 3 days a week. They went camping with Pope and Grammy again this week and I was able to join up with them on Friday. Unfortunately, Whittier was in its true form with wind and rain.
We did have fun teaching the kids how to play Go Fish
and of course we still had to play outside. I'm not sure if you can tell how soaking wet these two are, but we literally dumped water out of their boots. They had so much fun jumping and splashing in all the puddles.
We ended our trip early because the weather was just too windy and rainy. It's not safe for the kids to be out in the boat to help with shrimping when the seas are so rough and no fun to try and keep two active kiddos busy and happy in the camper. I'm looking forward to having this week off with the kiddos and Papa. I think we are going to try and take a day trip to Seward and go to the Sea Life Center this week. I think the kids (well, me too) would really enjoy it.
For now, it's laundry and some much needed showers after a few days of camping!
