Rain or Shine

Camping in Alaska definitely sets the bar high - Sitting around a fire under the midnight sun, being afraid to fall asleep knowing there could be a bear lingering in the bushes outside your tent, knowing there's a good chance it will rain, or possible even snow.  There's not many places that can top that.

This Memorial Day long weekend we ventured a little further into the unknown, 3 hours northeast of Anchorage past a little town called Eureka. 

Here is our Memorial Day weekend in pictures. Or at least the first night, before it started raining and did. not. stop. 

We stopped for lunch with a view, of the Matanuska Glacier.

Our night was spent along along the flowing Little Nelchina River.

We even got to test our new bear spray... just in case.

Camping is the perfect escape, rain or shine.

Happy Memorial Day to all of our American friends!
