Alaska II
July 6 - July 8, 2019




Waiting for a shuttle to Exit Glacier




Another mosquito heaven




Starting the trail




Walking fast




A peak of our destination




Some uphill




Peter taking lots of pictures




A stop with Mama




Running along




Snapping a few more pictures




As far as we can go




Exit glacier




Signs indicating the extent of the glacier over the years




Picture with Papa




Now all four of us




Climbers




Miners




Smashing rocks




Papa




Let's go down to the river




To cool off




Feels good




Mama walked across the river for a closer look




There it is




The boys building




I found a chunk of ice!




And a bigger one




Let's take a picture of it




Touch it




Feel it




Ice cold




Back in the shuttle




Philip resting




Just in time to catch our train back to Anchorage




Peter really enjoying it




Philip grumpy at times




He has another loose tooth that is bothering him




Peter outside with Papa




Taking it in




Feeling the wind through his hair




He captured these moose




Waterfalls




Creeks




And glaciers




In the restaurant




Waiting for dinner




Peter the master of pictures this trip




Finally, food!




Pretty good




All four outside




Mountains




And marshes




Approaching Anchorage




Philip happy inside




Especially with the full service - all drinks included




Still smoky and hot in Anchorage




Driving up to Talkeetna and having lunch




Denali flightseeing tour




Let's go




Peter ready




Papa ready




Philip ready




Taking off




Over the river




Peter looking out and listening




Philip found snow in the cooler




Flying up river to Denali




Getting closer




Huge valley




Impressive mountains




Two glaciers merge




Going higher up




Flying close to the moose's tooth rock




More and more snow




Wide valley




Two planes landed below




We fly further




Jagged peaks




Massive




Turquiose snow melt




A few more turns




Before we head to our landing spot




Shorts and T-shirts at first




Then putting on jackets




Family picture




The highlight of our trip (for me, at least)




We were super lucky with the weather




Mama talking with the pilot




Philip




Peter




Papa




Mama joining




I am so happy we did this




Papa with the boys




Beautiful




Run papa, run




Snowball fight




There is more coming




Walking around




Calming down




Our plane




On the way back




The kids playing with glacier ice




Papa was co-pilot




He got a super clear view of the glaciers




And the Denali range




There he is




Back in Talkeetna, a cute little town




Ice cream




Stylish moose




Gift shops




Bikes to rent




Reaching the river - is that Denali in the back?




Stopping at a local artisan coffee shop




Cooling off on their couch
