Welcome to Mordor
My view from the car
After lunch we wandered around a bit. The water was exceptionally beautiful, an interesting gray color. We drove around the town, taking maybe ten minutes, and bought some fudge before heading back to the tunnel.
My mom bought me that raincoat
Maybe old mining junk?
On the other side of the tunnel there's a visitor center for glaciers, and we popped in.
I made a friend
Pieces of glacier floating around
On the way back to Anchorage, we pulled off at a little lake. In nicer weather, it would be a great picnic spot as well. The gorgeous water was only marred by a few seagulls floating on its lightly rippled surface. Dang seagulls.
That night I joined my small group for games and a cookout. Looking back on it, I had a very traditional fourth. Picnic, games, bbq. The only things missing was the volleyball/baseball and swimming. Oh, and the fireworks. They had a firework ban. I guess you can't win them all.
