Postcard from Rabbit Lake

It has been raining here most of this week. It is hard to really appreciate the beauty of Alaska when all the mountains are covered by rain clouds. But this Saturday the sun came out. Yay! We celebrated by going on 12.5 mile hike from the trailhead of Rabbit Lake to McHugh Creek. It was more than twice as long as any hike Adelle has done. But she was a trooper and did it with very little whining. Isn't it just beautiful? We hiked past the tree line through the taiga and onto the tundra. Tundra is spongy and fun to walk on. I love hiking to Rabbit Lake!
