We Love Hatcher Pass!

We went sledding today...and what a blast we had. We even had a bit of sunshine (I'll take any I can get this time of year.) I'm not sure if the boys had more fun sledding or just log rolling down the mountain. Can you spot the three of them in the picture below?

After we'd had our fill, we stopped in for cocoa and nachos at the very humble, rustic, yet charming Hatcher Pass Lodge. There's been a lot of talk about development in the Pass for several years. It's sad to think of what we'd lose if that really happens. A fancy ski lodge would be very dull compared to the stark, natural beauty we enjoy in this present "playground".

I miss Hatcher Pass so much. . . we were going to get married there! Yes I think I see the boys, they are the black spots right? ;)

Glad to hear that the development hasn't come through yet. I agree, it's better without it! :)
