The week started out with some serious heat, I could have been easily convinced I was back at Dartmouth. However, as soon as the solstice hit, which is technically the start of summer, actually marked the return to normal AK summer (or lack thereof). But it hasn't rained yet so I can't really complain.
|On one hot evening we decided to take a dip in the river to cool off. Lots of others had the same idea. This however, was my reminder that I was still in AK and not in New England...|
|Freezing now as I emerge from the lake|
|We had a nice visit from Mr. Bear, who knew it was Wednesday, trash day! bad bear!|
|Sadie, enthralled by the bear and not running for once in her life|
I have been getting back into road biking lately. Biking is not great for my back, but it is for my newly injured feet so I have to pick my battles. Road biking in Anchorage is really an experience. For one, there aren't many roads in AK so all our riding is in the city. Two, there are lots of hidden secrets in the city if you go far enough. Three, the animals are still lurking in the depths of the city. Four, there is lots of construction and dirt roads so really its more like cyclocross, than road riding.
|Caught by construction, we hit the soccer field to get back to the planned route.|
|A day adventuring|
|Dressed up for the event|
|Momma and baby chilling in the yard.|
|Another adventure ride, we found this scenic spot that reminded me of some rides I did around Hanover.|
