vacation pictures.

i’m finally getting around to posting my vacation pictures from the summer. cricket, meg and eilidh went with us to the yukon and alaska for 10 days. we had a wonderful time! the scenery is gorgeous and the weather was nice and cool. we missed the heat wave back home for which we were all thankful. we got back to cooler weather and the next week the yukon got their heat wave, so perfect timing on our part. we did a bit of hiking and a lot of exploring. here are some of my favorite pictures of cricket (wearing her new sweater and hat)

we landed in whitehorse then drove down to skagway
we were driving along through the mountains then suddenly saw sand on the side of the road. when we pulled over there was this amazing stretch of sand dunes which we explored for a couple of hours before driving on.
inland desert
carcross desert yukon is apparently the world’s smallest desert. but cricket thought it was the perfect size.

exploring the beautiful grounds of the cabins where we stayed in skagway, right near the base of the chilkoot trail. we went on a 2 hour hike up the trail, which was fun. my health isn’t good enough to actually hike the whole thing (apparently a 4-6 day hike!)

we also took the train up the whitehorse pass. part of the historic goldrush trail

cricket was fascinated and stared out the window the whole way.
