After Friday clinic I went with some friends to Pilgrim hot springs. The drive was absolutely gorgeous (again). On the way there we stopped at the Grand Central Bridge, just before Salmon Lake. One of our friends was summoned to the “Ice Bucket for a cause” challenge, and instead of doing the ice bucket, he opted for bridge jumping into the coldest water…just short of freezing. And since we were there, we all decided we had to do it for solidarity. 🙂 To be honest, when I first came and heard of bridge jumping here, I didn’t think I could ever do it. I’m not much of a cold-water girl.
Such gorgeous green water! Don’t be fooled by the kids swimming here. they are Alaska kids and they are designed for coldness!!! These are the same kids that are out in shorts and flip-flops when it’s freezing outside! 🙂
Misty mountains. The heart-achingly beautiful drive back home. With stories from Randy, a gold miner, whose great grandfather went out to mine the Yukon, and whose great grandmother was a surgeon from New York! What a fascinating heritage and so many incredible stories!
