Our family is incredibly blessed to live in Alaska where there is wilderness and extreme beauty all around us. It can be easy to take it all for granted, which is why we like to go for walks (or more strenuous hikes for my older boys) in the areas close to our home. One evening, my husband, youngest son, and I enjoyed such an outing where we could observe the change in seasons at North Fork Eagle River.
Our ‘hike’ had us at the North Fork of Chugach State Park (outside of Anchorage in Alaska) which has a nice trail leading back to the river. It was so nice to be together and enjoy the scenery in relative quiet (as we only encountered another small group for a brief moment.)
As it was close to his bedtime, J occasionally looked for a place to ‘rest’ even if he didn’t want to admit he was tired.
Of course, J can be a little silly at times, too.
I especially loved watching the moon rise over the valley. The photo below doesn’t do justice to the actual experience….
Do you enjoy taking walks in nature with the family or on your own?
Has spring arrived at your home?
