Family Fun at the Cabin

One of the joys of living here in Alaska is going to my parents’ cabin in the middle of undeveloped land near a beautiful lake.  In fact, we can only get there by floatplane, snow machine or four-wheeler…  and when we get there, it’s total peace.

Recently, we made the visit I thought I’d give you a little peek.

The first is a photo of Tripp with my dad on the snow machine.  Tripp loves to ride around in the snow, and he’s definitely learning from the best.  (Dad is a four-time champion of the Iron Dog, the world’s longest snow machine race!)









The second is from the same scene, but you can see yours truly in the background.  Also, see those mountains?  That’s Mount McKinley, North America’s highest peak with a height of 20,320 feet.  I live in the most beautiful state in America!










And the last photo is pretty self-explanatory. After a long day in the snow, there’s nothing I love more than cuddling with Tripp!

    You do indeed live in the most beautiful state. It’s my life long dream to be able to move to Alaska. And one of these days, I WILL!!! Only problem is I don’t think I could be away from my kids and grandson…and I definitely know they don’t want to live where it’s cold!!! Wonderful family Bristol!

    You do live in a beautiful state. I visited there for 2 mos. and would love to go back. It is so large and diversified and really beautiful. I agree wit Jan….love the pictures.

    Bristol, thanks for sharing. I know you must be such a blessing to your mother. You do live in a beautiful area of the world; one that I hope to visit one day. We live in Wyoming, very near Yellowstone Nat’l Park, so I guess until I actually see AL myself, I will have to beg to differ just a bit. I ran for Park County Commissioner two years ago and when I was doing my public forums, people told me that I reminded them of your mother…I take that as a compliment.

    Alaska is God’s country. Breathtakingly beautiful, Bristol. Your dad is the perfect person to teach Tripp how to ride a snow machine. Maybe one day Tripp will compete in the Iron Dog. The shot of you cuddling with Tripp is possibly the most beautiful I’ve ever seen of the two of you. The love you have for your son is so palpable, Bristol. This photo melts my heart.
