This was our hike a couple weeks ago out in Haines Junction. Heather, Sean, Sarah and Adelaide led the way as the locals with the knowledge. Knowledge of WHAT, we're not sure...
Starting out. Sean, Heather and ah crap, whats-her-name.... ??
Warning: beware of big fuzzy things. Esp. since someone in HJ got chased up a tree by a big ANGRY fuzzy thing a few weeks before this.
Let the hiking begin! It was an easy trail as you can see, although Sean found pushing the girls (the babies that is) up some of the fairly steep hills in the Chariot a wee bit challenging! It didn't help that Heather was trying to hitch a ride on the Chariot.
You gotta love people who are prepared - Dale whips a tape measure out of his pants to measure a tree. Us northerners get REAL excited about big trees. And yes, that was considered big!!! You shoulda seen the stump eh?!!
Heather gives us crap for lagging behind and missing her awe-inspiring interpretive talk. Oh whupps, Were you talking to me?!?! (Interpretive Guides can get REAL annoying when you don't listen, haha)
Poppa Sean and Adelaide
The girls seemed to enjoy the hike, strapped into their jail... er, chariot!
The hiking gang. Note Heather's sexy pose. I swear I don't really know these people...
Eagle-Eye Interpretive Guide Heather even notices semi-private moth sex in the forest! She's just that good people. (can't wait till someone Googles "moth sex"!!)
Dale and Sean wander up ahead. Or try to escape the women-folk blathering behind them.
I had a burning desire to run up/hike up that hill!!! I don't know why. Maybe next time. We were on a mission this day.
So pretty! What a fun day hike that was. And the fact that we didn't see any big fuzzy things, even better!
