30: Hunting Trip 2011
31: Alex and Natalie went on their first deer hunting trip to Cable, Wisconsin. They stayed at the always rustic Garmisch Lodge. On this trip, one evening, as dusk fell, they got lost in the dark. John and Natalie couldn't find their way back to the ATV and they were separated from Alex in the pitch dark. After Natalie panicked and John finally got his bearings, they found the ATV and tried to get back to Alex only to have the ATV break down. After hours, they found each other at last, but everyone has vivid memories of that night alone in the dark, dark woods or Northern Wisconsin.

54: July 2011
55: Our trip began in Anchorage where we rented an RV. We then traveled in the RV to Seward, Homer, Talkeetna, Denali and finally back to Anchorage. Our trip to Alaska was during the Summer. Because of that, it was almost 24 hours of daylight. The land of the midnight sun.
56: Reindeer Sausage is a popular breakfast item. (It tastes like reindeer smell!) | Kenai Fjords whale watching boat trip
57: While in Seward we went on a whale watching boat trip. We attempted to go Salmon fishing but after Alyssa started throwing up and the entire family was on it's knees, we had to turn around. Couldn't even enjoy the fish we caught. We skipped rocks on Fox Island and enjoyed the scenery. Breathtaking!
61: Exit Glacier | While at the Iditarod dog sled camp, Alex got to dress up like a musher

85: The STanley Hotel | The Stanley Hotel is best known as one of the most haunted hotels in the country. Steven King wrote his epic horror film The Shining while staying at The Stanley and was said to get his inspiration from the scary stories told at the hotel. While we didn't pay for a tour, Alex snuck in to the tour and took some pictures of Steven King's room as well as one of the rooms haunted by a man who's picture is in the lower left.
86: Love that hotel robe
87: One of the most memorable moments on our trip was the ride up the mountain to the summit of Pikes Peak. At the top the air was so thin that they had oxygen tanks in the gift shop. We drove all the way up, got out, Natalie and John got panicky about not breathing, we went to the bathroom and went right back down.
88: Happy Easter
