Fun on a river and more BIG vegetables
Posted By Linda Branham on August 14, 2013 @ 4:54 pm
We are having a few showers today, but nothing serious.  Everyone is out fishing for the day and the sounds of housekeepers vacuuming, Micah chopping vegetables in the kitchen, airplanes returning from the morning drop offs____in other words all is normal and on schedule in another day of Alaskan lodge life. 

We have three teenagers here this week who have never fly-fished and I'm happy to report they are real troopers and doing quite well.  Alison has been prolific in her pursuit of the rainbow, John has been a true sport, and Kyle has taken some amazing footage with his GoPro, entertaining us nightly with the results.  Here is a photo of all of them rafting down a river, with Todd as their guide.  It is so much fun, stopping for lunch, fishing, floating, watching the wildlife pass by____a great day for anyone that enjoys the outdoors.

Great photo taken by RWL's Kris Kennedy

Here is a photo of Nancy bringing in a big one.

One of our resident photographers, Tom King, has taken an amazing sequel of a brown bear thundering through the water, making all the salmon quickly disappear.  I'm going to try and get this on YouTube and onto our website soon_____I promise! 

I just had to take a photo of our Igiugig Village cauliflower and cabbage____compare this to our lower 48 cabbages, WOW!  Yes, the long days of an Alaskan summer definitely make larger vegetables! Cauliflower is on the menu tonight and cold slaw was on last night.  So grateful to be able to enjoy the local Alaskan produce this summer.  Love those long summer days.

Here is a photo of Sarah holding the giant cabbage and cauliflower.
