and a great visit with my son and his family. 4 of the days were spent in the backwoods....many miles by boat to stay in a friends cabin. GREAT time. Probably the neatest think is that, although the cabin wasn't there at the time....I got to spend time with my grandkids at a place I spent many weeks at with their dad at their age. Below are a couple links to some pics...one is of this trip....one is to an album some of you may have seen before...raising my children in Alaska. No need to sign in, even though there's a place to do so....just click on the picture and it will open the album. Aug 2005 trip Alaskan Memories All the best to you and yours....our prayers are with those of the Gulf Coast.
