On Olnes Pond

A couple weekends ago we went out to this beautiful pond. It's about 30 miles out of town. Just far enough away to feel like we "got away." We spent the afternoon splashing around in the pond, hiking, and riding our bikes. It was so beautiful! We plan to go camping here soon.

We had to bribe Gwyneth to snap this one of us! Pretty good eh?

David snapped this one of me.
The heart shaped rock she found.

These flowers grow wild here. Bushes, and bushes of them! They are lovely splashes of color along the roads. Irises grow wild here as well! They are so beautiful!
David's bike had a flat from the start. Fortunately he was smart enough to bring along the pump.
Beautiful wildflowers again.

Touching the birch wood. It's incredibly smooth and beautiful!
Moose droppings! Gross, but hey we want to educate you all! ha!


  1. Wow, Alaska is really beautiful ! I seriously thought that it would be snowy all year round but obviously you have a summer season too ! Looks great ! Maybe we should come visit you next summer ! That would be a BIG trip !! How long is the summer season ?

  2. Great pictures! I love that you take so much time exploring your new home and the area around it. How fun for Gwyneth (and you guys). She'll have so many great memories. :)

  3. These pics are wonderful. The pond and surrounding area are absolutely gorgeous. I'll bet the pics don't do it justice. It must have been a wonderful time. Hopefully during your next summer your mom and I will be able to be there and experience the beauty and tranquility. Thanks for sharing the photos. I love you all and miss you very much.


  4. wow wish we could come see all that beauty! Looks like you will have fun camping there!
