Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.
~Henry David Thoreau~
This is a pic my youngest son snapped on our family trip to Alaska in 2007--isn't it gorgeous?!?!? Alaska had always been a dream of mine and we were blessed to be able to make a two-week trip in May that year with our two sons. We flew to Anchorage, rented an RV and drove 1700+ miles in a big loop on all 3 major highways--yup, there's only 3 main highways. Saw lots of awesome scenery...hiked through untamed wilderness...were lucky to have a gorgeous view of Mt. McKinley...saw loads of wildlife...a cousin from Fairbanks with his own charter service flew us north of the Arctic Circle to Fort Yukon (awesome experience--thanks Tom)...went deep-sea fishing with wonderful folks who have roots here in our area--thanks Denny and Ginger (son #1 and I each caught a skate and halibut)...and that's just a smidgen of the adventure...it was truly a trip of a lifetime--one that will never be forgotten! Yes, dreams do come true!
Mt. McKinley--all I can say is "WOW".
(I found Thoreau's quote today and originally was just going to post it...then thought, "why not add a pic to go with it"...then the rest just seemed to flow...I may share some more pics and adventures in a future post if you're interested...let me know.)
