May 25th-26th, 2010 pt.2

A head popped up in the window and we were relieved it was Paulmer.  All three of us were surprised and happy to see each other once again.  It felt like we were meeting on another planet since the last time we met; the contrast between Florida and Alaska is huge.  Paulmer drove us around town to see some sights while we were bringing him up to speed on our travels.  When we asked if it was ok to pitch our tent next to his van, Paulmer would have none of it.  The three of us managed to fit in his van and all was well.

I wonder if Amanda will notice if I let out a silent one. 

The following morning, Paulmer suggested we check out Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park while he went to work.  We had a quick breakfast and headed out.

KLR in Realtree camo?  I’m surprised we were able to spot this. 

Exit Glacier from a distance

How many National Parks we’ve been to?  I’ve lost count.

Look at all this open space

There were many sign posts along the trail leading up to the glacier to reveal how much it has receded over the years. 

If you look really close, you might be able to see Amanda beside the glacier.  She just had to touch it despite the “Warning!  Do not enter!” signs. 

On our way back to Seward

We met up with Paulmer after he was done work and the three of us decided to have a picnic dinner in Lowell Point by the seashore.

Six thousand mile reunion.

How’d you get up there?
