On Friday morning Emily and I hit the road early...as in I only had about 4 hours of sleep. Ug!! We drove until Mt. McKinley and then stretched our legs. It's not too often the mountain isn't under cloud cover.
I had a traumatic experience driving to the top of the parking garage. It was crowded and I am claustrophobic. By the time we reached the top I was in tears. That panicky feeling that I can't escape did me in. I was fine once we were in the open. We parked on the street the second day.
The flowers in downtown Anchorage are stunning.
We immediately got to shopping after all that's what this was.... a girl-time trip to shop! (Something Emily and I have never got to do). We had too much fun with the funny mirror in the dressing room.
Dinner was at Humpy's and Emily nachos were to die for.
We were on the road by 6:45am and it wasn't too bad of a drive. We pulled over once and I caught a 45-minute nap. At home I got to work on a few of the flower beds. They have been choked out by the weeds. I am going to have to mulch next year as I just don't have the time to take care of them. Chickweed is awful!

Last week Emily and I hauled wood from the backside of the Great Hole. Do you see how far down it is?
