I did actually do a bit of posting today. There is still much more to do, but it is a start. Sorry for you having to look back - who knows when that will end . . . MJ

Pt. Bridget to Blue Mussel Cabin

This was a great cabin to hike to. The trail is so easy and your not spent when you get to the cabin. It was overcast the first day, but no rain and when we woke the next morning it was gorous out. Bob and Steven spent lots of time fishing, Bob caught a nice size fish that we had for dinner. Steven did a little exploring on his own and a little with Uncle Bob, noises in the woods scare boys too! Pt. Bridget Trail is one of our favorites and Blue Mussel is at the top of our cabin list thus far. MJ

Getting ready to hike Pt Bridget

Pt Bridget is a favorite trail of ours - the end reward is so spectaculor. This trip we are hiking out to Blue Mussell Cabin for the night. It's cloudy out, and a bit chilly, but the rain has stopped and we are heading out soon. As I am getting ready this morning a few thoughts come to mind:
- Who doesn' like Smartwool socks? They are a bit pricey, but so worth it.
- It is always important to have a full belly before hitting the trail. This morning it is pancakes
and sausage and hold onto your socks, I am cooking! I know, it's not rocket science, but it's
still me.
- Steven visiting has been good for us in so many ways. One of them is that we are getting out
and enjoying the beautiful cabins that AK State Parks offers. It has been wonderful.
- If you haven't been here yet, you should come. Bob and I love to show this place off. It has so
much to offer if you love God's canvas.
- Getting ready for little trips like this is bittersweet - I am reminded of all the joys of camping
with family and friends - it is so hard to be way from all of you. Our hearts are so full of love
for each and everyone.
- I am grateful to my mom that is rarely ever let us sleep in. I enjoy my mornings. The
peacefulness of it and how productive I can be. She is a wise women.
- My Camelback still taste like iodine - I think it's time for a new one and this one can just be
for "those kind" of hikes!
- I am looking forward to spending time with the "The Time Traveler's Wife".
Time to print our confirmation and head out. MJ

And now it's August!
