This past weekend we ventured to my in-law’s cabin a couple hours north of Anchorage.
This is a picture of the cabin we stayed in. It is very rustic—no running water or indoor plumbing. This picture was taken last May when my sister came to visit. This picture and more pictures from that weekend can be found here. (Yes, that is snow on the ground.)
Craig and I went with two other couples. When we arrived Friday night, we spent some time hanging around the campfire.
Saturday morning I went running while everyone else slept in. (Classic.) When I got back from running, Craig made a delicious breakfast for us. (I think breakfast is one of his favorite meals to cook; he takes after his dad.)
Steel-cut oatmeal + egg scramble that we wrapped in burrito shells. Delicious!
Everyone took their turn, but some were a little less trusted with the ax.
Saturday afternoon we drove into Talkeetna and checked out the Susitna River. It was cloudy, but on a clear day you can see Mt. McKinley.
And no trip to Talkeenta is complete without a stop at the Flying Squirrel.
And don’t forget about pretending to be a flying squirrel. Although Craig looks like he about ready to fly into a tree and die. (Here’s my impression of the flying squirrel.) Saturday night we spent some time around the camp fire again and then went into the sauna. Unfortunately I dind’t get any pictures.
Sunday morning I went running again while everyone slept in again. We then packed up and headed back to Anchorage. It was a fun weekend and nice to do something different rather than the normal weekend routine.
