Have you ever dreamed of going to another state or country?
Well I have....I have always wanted to go to Alaska.
Zoe and I met the Take sisters at a camp last year and they invited us to come and visit them in Alaska. So Zoë and I took them up on their invitation.
After our long flight to Anchorage, the Take sisters Melody and Ruth picked us up at the airport and took us to their house to get settled in. Then Melody and Ruth took us to Bird Point a scenic outlook in the Chugach State Park and we walked the train tracks. That night we packed our backpacks for a hike and the campout the next day. We awoke at 4am and loaded our backpacks into the truck. We began hiking at 8:15am for a 7 mile hike to the campsite. There was a constant drizzle the entire time we hiked and camped. So we were all wet and our clothes were wet too. We hiked out the next morning, for a total of 14 miles. We got back to the truck looking forward to a hot cup of coffee that we would buy in town. But the truck wouldn't start, the battery had died. Thankfully one of the girls had brought another car so we tried to jump it but is still would not start. So we left and went to a coffee shop and then drove around to some other scenic points in the area. And then went back to the truck to try and jump the truck again. And thank the Lord it started!
