The Rest of the Story

OK – so we made it to the Arctic Circle. But John and Rosie made it all the way to the Arctic Ocean and he just dropped off a couple of their pictures of the day –

For the area I’m sure it’s a 5 star!

While the scenery right up in Purdhoe Bay was less than stunning, I know they traveled through some impressive areas –

And even though they traveled home through the same rain we did, they were blessed with this rainbow at one of their stops –

And Now The Rest of Another Story
Today is the eighth anniversary of our son Toby and his beautiful wife Tammy. I don’t have any cute/current pictures of the loving couple, but I did snag some pix of their precious little girls off of Facebook –

Happy Anniversary, Toby and Tammy!

One thought on “The Rest of the Story”

  1. I really enjoyed the pictures of your trip, since I’am thinking about the trip to Alaska. I think you folks are doing a fantastic job in your mission work, and also it takes a lot of courage to sale ones house and take off on the road the way you folks did. I would have liked to have seen more prices of things such as the price of gas and the cruises and maybe the price of food and also more pictures of the pull-offs for camping . I understand that there are some places that are free.
