Today was the first day of our Alaska trip. Last night we drove to Snow College and picked up Hannah from soccer camp. We got home about 9:30 pm and started packing. We didn’t get to bed until about mid-night.
This morning we got up and drove to the airport. The flight left about 10:00 am and we arrive in Anchorage at 12:30 pm their time. The motor home rental place picked us up from the airport. It took about 1-1/2 hour to checked in for the motorhome and unpacked. We next drove to Wal-Mart and purchased about $250 of food. It was about 6:00 pm when we got out of Wal-Mart and drove out of Anchorage.
It was a little more than an hour driving to get to the Portage Glacier road. We drove up that road and found the last campsite at Williwaw campground. We paid $18 for the night. We had eaten a late lunch so we were not very hungry. We went on a 2 mile hike and got back to the RV at around 9:00 pm. We were all pretty tired so we went to bed early. Here it is about 9:15 pm and still very light outside.
Here is a bear deposit that we found on the trail. It looked pretty fresh, so we made more noise as we walked on the trails.
