This is one of my favorite spots in our "backyard". It is just beautiful, and the sound of the waterfall is so soothing. I love this picture of A. The water was really flowing this day. The snow has been melting and it has been raining for several days. But we got out as soon the sun came out, and had the best day. This was not planned, but typically when we go for a walk, some toy animal or another get thrust into my pocket to go for a ride. This plastic blue duck was one of the lucky ones this day, and was perfect for the streams of flowing water that were so abundant in the tundra after the rain.
I had to catch this guy before he went around the curve as it was a drop off into the canyon running down into the waterfall.
You can see how wet it was....perfect for the x-tra tuff boots :) My little Alaskan girl.
In case your wondering what all the scraps of old wood and twisted metal and pipes are doing in the middle of the Tundra, that is all old WWII stuff. This hill is called Generals Hill....in fact our house is built directly on top of the old Generals house. The hill is riddled with the remains of old buildings, bunkers, and trenches. It's pretty cool, even a few bomb scars.
Oh how I love the view behind her.
We found a root growing out of the gravel. Pretty sturdy creature. Wonder what it will become?
