While here Sally and Michael came to visit at our camp site and broke bread with us and played Mex. train. I was having so much fun that I did not get a pic of Michael the first day they came. But got Sally on the second. It was great fun seeing them both again. We do not understand, but the are getting older.
The Alaska trip is over and we are on our own. We stayed 5 days in Cultus Lake Ca. It is a TT park and oh so pretty. We went to the Minter Gardens and had lunch. Rog looked it up on line and got a special deal. So we saw the 36 acre gardens and it was great. We came home and Rog wanted to check something on the slide out and it would not come in. Let me go back a couple of weeks and let you know that we had slide out problems on the passenger side of the coach and Rog bought a jump-starter and rigged things up so that the slide would go in and out, so now I have my bed again. Then the driver's side slide would not work. This one we needed help because it is
on our way our of Stewart, Ca and Hyder, Ak we are driving out and the view was wonderful with glaciers everywhere. As we drove up to and by this area we thought we were seeing water flowing down, but as we got closer it was ice and snow falling from the glacier many feet above, maybe 2,000 ft. the whiter areas are where the ice and snow are falling. We were not able to park along this area to take really good pics. By the time we were able to park it was far away and the avalanche had slowed and then stopped. It was a great sight to see. The next pic is a small area and it had slowed down a lot and as we watched it stopped.
