Thanksgiving in the Great Land
November 21-December 2, 2003
Kim and I are spending a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday here in Alaska with Kim's parents and grandparents!
Monday we skied and snowshoed up Lazy Mountain. (10°F). Tuesday I skied down the road to the local Elementary School for some exercise. Wednesday we skied/snowshoed up Thunderbird Creek (5°F) to do some ice climbing (pictures to come!). Friday I skied down to the Elementary School again, then later that evening I built an igloo (9°F). Saturday we all drove up to Talkeetna (-17°F) and took in the sights. Monday Kim and I are hoping to either try climbing Pioneer Peak or, if the avalanche conditions are bad, head back into Thunderbird Falls. for some more ice climbing.
