In August, Aaron was able to take a trip to visit his brother in Alaska -
Aaron in front of some of the beautiful mountains. He took a lot of pictures, and the scenery is so different from here that every one seems amazing to me :)
Aaron's parents went on a trip to Alaska as well and they overlapped with part of Aaron's visit.
This is a glacier -
They went on a boat ride to look at some of the glaciers around a lake.
Fish in the water - I believe some of them were salmon.
This was at a wildlife refuge - we watched a documentary on grizzly bears last year and the girls were afraid for Aaron to go camping in Alaska. They thought maybe he and Josh should put up a tent in the living room instead :)
More animals at the wildlife refuge -
More mountains -
and lakes -
and rivers -
Elijah and Josh at Elijah's birthday party - He turned 3!
Aaron, Dad, and Josh after church on Sunday -
A chocolate fountain at a store -
Aaron by a mounted bear -
I like the scenery pictures with Aaron better than the ones without :)
Aaron and Josh went on a couple short camping/hiking trips - here they walked out on a glacier -
I'm not sure how safe that is....
Even though it was still August, some of the leaves were starting to change colors!
They visited the port town of Valdez.
A mounted moose at a museum -
I love all the waterfall pictures too!
The Alaskan oil pipeline -
They hiked up by this waterfall -
See the parking lot down below? This was near Anchorage -
