AND WE'RE OFF TO THE WEDDING!

Next Saturday we need to be at our oldest grandson's wedding in Minnesota.  Aaron and Callie are being married at a camp, kind of between St. Cloud and Minneapolis, and we need to be there!  Actually, we need to be there the day before to make potato salad for the reception.  So, we are off!

And what a beautiful day to travel.  There were tears yesterday leaving Nils.  Then today leaving Anchorage it kind of cements it....we're on our way out of here.  We stayed at the AFB last night, and were out of there bright and early this morning as we wanted to stop at Ernie's youngest brother and wife's place about a half hour out of Anchorage on the road we needed to go on anyhow.

The secnery heading up the mountain to their place was awesome!
Stopped by this pretty little stream that was tumbling down the mountainside.
 Finally arrived at Gary and Joy's place.
 What a beautiful place it is!
 With views like this outside their windows!
And then we said goodbye to them and headed north and east, up the Glenn and Richardson Highways towards the Alaska Highway which we would pick up at Tok, our destination for the night.
The views heading this direction are nothing short of awesome!
 Around every corner and over every hill there is another beautiful scene.
 The colors sure have changed in the two weeks since we came the other direction on this highway!  Fall is here!
 Beautiful...
Love the change of seasons...
And the first snows on the tops of the peaks.
Beauty everywhere you look.
And we are now at Tok on the first night on our trip back home.  We pray for good weather, and safe travel, and look forward to seeing everyone at the wedding in a week!

Man alive, that is just tooo beautiful for words. AND I know that the pictures can't truly capture the real beauty of the land. I so enjoy this journey you have taken. I can't believe you have another agenda to be met in a few short days. Keep up the picture and continue to stay safe.
