My friend Christine wanted to get a Slush Puppy at the Co-op grocery store, but the machine had run out. This was a major disappointment. She had never had one in her whole life before (I know, right? How does that happen?) so she had been looking forward to having a North American experience...and really, a very Northern experience too, since the kids here like to suck on that stuff even in the middle of winter. But alas, today was not going to be the day. Instead, we loaded up on Lunchables as our hiking snacks and headed out into the tundra.
Other parts of the river were not so frozen
washing the dog in the river. The dog didn't appreciate that
It was just so nice to get out on the land.
When we returned at First Bridge, we saw a man holding an empty jug, looking like he was going to either go for a pee or take some water from the river. Hopefully not both. If both, hopefully one before the other.
